Upcoming Programs and Events
1st Annual Girls in Computer Science Summit!

Code in the Schools aims to expose young women in grades 9-12 who have not traditionally had access to computer science education to a dynamic day of workshops, panels, and networking with leading industry professionals. We are asking for your help in directing young women you feel would benefit from this educational and networking opportunity! We hope that this event will catalyze their interest in computer science and serve as the first step in accessing further CS programming with CITS and other local organizations.
