Go CODE Girl

Go CODE Girl aims to ignite interest in software and computer engineering at a time when students are thinking about their future careers and are choosing courses that will prepare them for further education.

Waterloo’s event is hosted by the Faculty of Engineering and is part of the Ontario Network of Women in Engineering (ONWiE) initiative. More than 500 students in Grades 9 to 11 will take part in Go Code Girl events taking place in eight different locations across the province in February and March.

 “Today, software forms the backbone of our interconnected and digital world,” said Professor Mary Wells, the chair of ONWiE and a professor in the Faculty of Engineering at Waterloo. “Learning to code can lead to increased digital confidence, a different way of thinking about problems and the ability to understand and use technology to help develop creative solutions in almost any discipline.”

Waterloo’s Go CODE Girl event begins at 10 a.m. in Carl Pollock Hall.
