ProjectCSGIRLS will host a free workshop at George Mason University on Saturday, Jan. 23.
Middle school girls interested interested in participating in the 2016 ProjectCSGIRLS Competition should attend the workshop at George Mason University to learn about a variety of computer science topics, get feedback on project ideas and learn from some of the best technical professionals in the metro D.C. area.
Some of the topics that will be covered include mobile app development, game programming, web design, artificial intelligence and robotics. Attendees also have time to come up with project ideas, collaborate, and get feedback from mentors and instructors. No prior experience is required.
There will be two 2-hour long sessions of the workshop — Session 1 will be from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and Session 2 will run from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. Participants may attend only one of these identical sessions. Click here to register.
ProjectCSGIRLS is a 501(c)(3) national nonprofit working to close the gender gap in computer science and technology through running a national competition for middle school girls and workshops around the country.
