U.S. Embassy Athens sponsors “CodeGirls” - An interactive coding program for young girls in Kalamata and Kozani!

7 March 2015

The U.S. Mission to Greece is partnering with the Greek NGO Mataroa to sponsor a one-of-a-kind, innovative coding program for Greek girls aged 10-16. In an attempt to close the gender gap in the technology and engineering sectors, this program aspires to educate, inspire, and equip high-school girls with the skills and resources to pursue opportunities in computing fields.

By using innovative tools and with the guidance of three experienced female instructors, the CodeGirls will learn:
• How to create simple websites and communicate through the Internet
• How to use the HTML5 and CSS programming languages
• The skills required by cutting edge computer engineering firms
• The secrets and the future of new technologies

The pilot four-day program will be held March 7-8 and March 14-15 in Kalamata. The second program will be held March 21-22 and March 28-29 in Kozani. Each program will consist of a total of 25 CodeGirls. Participation to the program is free and will be on a first come basis, as spaces are limited. Pre-registration is required.

The ideal CodeGirl candidate is goal-oriented and is passionate about technology. She does not need to have previous experience in computing, or any specialization in mathematics. The aim is to create a mixed group comprised of girls with different levels of experience and varied interests.
Entries will be accepted until March 5 for the group in Kalamata and March 17 for the group in Kozani.
