uCodeGirl is hosting Crack the Code: Summer Technology Day Camp for Girls (June 19-29, 2017) is intended to bring together a diverse group of teen girls residing in the Fargo-Moorhead and surrounding counties attending public, private, including home school who wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity to come together.
Together they experience cutting edge technology lessons from industry professionals, independent time to work on their individual projects, and opportunities to bond with new friends.
Crack the Code summer event is focused on the three tenants of uCodeGirl: to inspire and build confidence, to equip with the knowledge and skills; and to connect to like-minded girls as well as STEM professionals for sustainable engagement, such as mentorship, networking, job shadowing. This eight days long summer immersion event for young girls will include programming through leadership training, and inspiring speeches by female role models, skill-building through entrepreneurial brainstorming and prototyping as well as coding web development, app development and programming robotics.
This unique event is made possible through the collaboration of the STEM ecosystem of higher institutions of learning, such as North Dakota State University, Moorhead State University Minnesota and Concordia. Technology companies and STEM professionals as instructors dedicated to inspiring, connecting and equipping the next generation of leaders and innovators will also be involved.
