The camps target girls of color and girls from low income households and will address the following:
- The disparity in gender equity with regard to Computer Science, technology, and digital design.
- Encourage girls to think of themselves as designers, rather than merely users, of software and games.
- Level the playing field for girls and provide opportunities for them to thrive in a learning environment that is tailored to their needs and interests.
The camps will also work to address how technology can help women in finding a career path and why girls should consider a career in technology. The camp will also identify resources for girls to extend their knowledge of tech study and careers post camp.
