A program aimed at getting more African-American girls involved in technology will introduce them to the world of developing mobile apps this Saturday.
Black Girls CODE is hosting a one-day workshop at Georgia Tech for girls ages 10-17. The San Francisco-based nonprofit wants to improve the number of African-American girls who earn degrees in technology, math and science by encouraging them to pursue those field before they hit college campuses.
The workshop will instruct girls on how to build their own mobile applications for Android phones. It will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Tech’s Klaus Advanced Computing Building. To register visit www.blackgirlscode.com/upcoming-programs.html.
