Go CODE Girl provides an opportunity for girls in grades 7 to 10 across Ontario to learn about the exciting world of coding and software development, and discover opportunities in computing and engineering fields!
The Lassonde School of Engineering is offering a series of fun, hands-on activities on February 11.
Our students – or “Lassondians” as we call them – will even be on hand to share their stories with you about what inspired them to become engineers and computer scientists.
Spots are limited, so sign up early!
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.
Learning to code can lead to increased digital confidence, a different way of thinking about problems and the ability to understand and use technology to help develop creative solutions in almost any discipline.
