Go CODE Girl 2022

Today, software forms the backbone of our interconnected and digital world. This includes everything from smart machines, to our communication systems, to the cars we drive. Coding is the ability to read and write in a language that a computer can understand so that you can instruct a computer how to perform complex tasks.

Go CODE Girl provides an exciting opportunity for girls to learn about the exciting world of coding and software development, and discover opportunities in computing, technology and engineering fields.

This event is open to girls from grades 7 to 12. We have an inclusive view of the word “girl.” All-girl programs welcome non-binary, two-spirit, trans, genderqueer and any other youth who identify with these programs.

Go CODE Girl 2022 will take place at the University of Victoria on Saturday, April 2, from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 pm.

About the event:

  • lunch will be provided
  • girls will get to meet and hear from women in the tech industry and undergraduate engineers and computer scientists from UVic
  • girls will participate in fun workshops on artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality (such as Oculus headsets) and 3D modelling – in other words, cool computer stuff!
  • masks and proof of vaccination are required

Limited spots are available – register today!
