Description:
COMPUGIRLS is a Free technology program designed for minority girls. COMPUGIRLS' goal is to increase the number of women entering computer science fields by offering adolescent girls (grades 8-12) from under-resourced school districts in the Greater Phoenix area a series of culturally relevant computer science courses. Supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation, COMPUGIRLS provides fun summer and after-school classes where participants learn the latest technologies in digital media, games, and virtual worlds and become a voice for social justice and change in the world.
