Black Girls CODE Presents- Build a Webpage in a Day Memphis!

Saturday, February 16, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM (CST)

Black Girls Code is the groundbreaking initiative founded by Kimberly Bryant.  An Electrical Engineer by trade, Kimberly felt the need to give back to the community by mentoring young girls of color through the introduction of technical knowledge.  This project has morphed globally and Kimberly now travels the world spreading the message to young girls of color (ages 10-17) that they can be the next Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, etc.  She has presented workshops on building web pages, creating apps, and learning code.

This is a wonderful opportunity to introduce young ladies to this program.  The cost is $25 and includes lunch and a snack.  There will be computers provided at the venue (Rhodes College).  The links  are attached to the event itself as well as to the Black Girls Code website for your information.
