GIRLS WHO CODE
Emily Ong, Senior Community Partner Manager for Girls Who Code
During this presentation, we will be featuring our Girls Who Code Clubs, which are completely free after-school programs for 3rd-5th or 6th-12th grade girls to join a sisterhood of supportive peers and role models and use computer science to change the world. Through fun and interactive curricula, Club girls not
only learn about how to positively impact their community through code, but they also are taught to be brave and resilient — which has an enormous impact on how they approach challenges and whether they stick with coding in the years to come.
SECOND DAY: Breakout sessions the second day will include: Open Education Resources, North Dakota Cyber Security Standards, Grant Writing Boot Camp, North Dakota Afterschool program, and so much more.
GRADUATE CREDIT: School library media specialists can get one professional development credit from Valley City State University. Carmen Redding, the School & Youth Services Specialist and Mary Soucie, the ND State Librarian, will teach an additional session Monday evening (5:00PM-8:00PM) for those who want the credit. VCSU charges $50 for the credit and you will need to register for it separately.
REGISTRATION: Cost to attend is $55 for both days, $35 for a single day, and $10 for the Monday afternoon session. Lunch is included in the registration fee.
