Girls in grades 6-12:  Now is your chance to get started learning how to write code with Girls Who Code, a national non-profit organization dedicated to closing the gender gap in technology.   Our group will be meeting on Wednesday evenings from 6-8pm beginning January 11th, at Main Library.

Come to this informational session to learn about the program and brainstorm ideas for projects with our group's leader, Rhoda Diwis.  Please call 421-1255 to sign up.

About our instructor:  Software developer, analyst and entrepreneur, Rhoda Diwis is a coder at heart and a lover of all things tech. Her interest in the exciting tech world was sparked when she joined an after-school computer club at the girls’ high school she attended. The wonder of building real-life solutions one line of code at a time led her to degrees and careers in computer technology, information systems and business management. Along the way, Rhoda founded a tech startup company to develop mobile apps for developing countries where none exist. She is passionate about empowering women and girls and strives to make a tangible contribution by mentoring girls who are building the next generation of all-things-tech.
