BitCamp at Atomic Object

February 3 @ 9:00 am - 2:30 pm

$25

We believe support and exposure are the best tools for introducing young women into a male-dominated industry.

Despite what you might have heard about technology jobs going overseas, there’s a growing demand for software professionals in the U.S. and an acute shortage of women in the industry.

To meet this challenge, SoftwareGR has implemented BitCamp, a one-day hands-on introductions to the Software Development profession for 7th and 8th grade girls – presented in a fun and supportive small-group environment. Each event is hosted by area studios, giving our students a first-hand look into the industry’s day-to-day. No programming experience is necessary. The emphasis is on learning by doing.

**A limited number of scholarships tickets are available. Please contact annie.kibler@softwaregr.org for more information.**
