#g1rlsc0de offers young women in the eighth through 10th grades the opportunity to explore computer programming through multiple platforms. It is designed to spark an interest in the technology field among young women who may wish to pursue a career in computer science.

The goal of the program is to expand young women's definition of computer science as well as demonstrate women can do great things in the computer science field. While male interest in the field has increased since 2004 and the advent of the mobile age, interest in the sector by women has actually decreased. The number of computing degrees or certificates earned by women has dropped by almost 30 percent, contributing to an even greater gender gap in an already male-dominated industry.

#g1rlsc0de will serve as an introduction to what is possible for women to accomplish in the computer science field. Individual sessions are set for three Saturdays during the 2017-18 academic year. Two sessions will be held on the ASMSA campus, and one will be held at the Little Rock Technology Park. For more information on the individual sessions, click on the specific information below for each session.

• Create a Mobile App with App, Dec. 16 at Little Rock Technology Park
