Porterville Unified School District and the Porterville Pathways program will be hosting the Girl Code camp in June for current seventh-grade students (eighth-grade for the 2018-19 school year). The camp will take place June 12-14 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Future Ready Lab Inspired by Qualcomm® Thinkabit Lab™
Girl Code is a camp for young teen girls to explore their self-identity through gained knowledge of opportunities in the engineering field and skills in coding, collaboration, and critical thinking. Through their self-exploration, these young girls will challenge the established social labels placed on women in engineering and forge a new path of their own.
In order to attend the camp, students MUST be able to attend all three days and have parents sign (digitally sign) the applications. NO coding experience is needed to participate.
Applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis beginning on Monday (April 30) at 3 p.m. until Friday (May 4) at 3 p.m., either by filling out an application and turning into the PUSD Pathways office (600 W. Grand Ave.) or by going online at http://pathways.portervilleschools.org.
