Code the Future is excited to announce an exciting partnership with Tech Girls Movement.
Tech Girls Movement is a non-profit organisation promoting positive female Information Technology role models to encourage and raise awareness of technology careers options for girls. The book, Tech Girls Are Superheroes, forms the basis for the campaign.
The Tech Girl Movement goal is to support the development of a more diverse IT workforce, ultimately resulting in better technology for society. They do this by encouraging awareness of tech careers with minds that matter. Tech Girl Movement is particularly dedicated to getting more girls into technology studies and careers.
Code the Future supports and recommends young girls to enter the ‘Tech Girls Are Superheroes’ competition. The competition encourages young girls interested in tech to create their own digital solutions, linking in great with the new Australian Digital Technologies curriculum.
