The University of Manitoba is holding a free Wise Kidnetic Energy All Girl Coding Camp in Flin Flon this summer. Jill Lautenschlager with Women In Science and Engineering says the camp is for girls 13 to 15. She explains they are going to be introducing the girls to computer coding and computational thinking through a lot of fun toys, things like cosmos robots, Lego mind storms, little bits and the whole idea is to get girls thinking about career options that are related to this type of knowledge and they definitely are welcoming people who don’t have any prior knowledge as the whole idea is just an introduction.
The camp runs at McIsaac School July 30 to August 3rd. The regular Science and Engineering Camp for boys and girls ages 9 to 12 at the same time is full but you can be put on a waiting list. Registration and more information on both Camps can be found on their website www.wisekidneticenergy.ca.
