Saturday workshop to teach girls to write code for virtual assistant

Alexa, tell me about UWindsor Engineering’s virtual Go CODE Girl.

It's a free coding workshop from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Feb. 27 for girls in Grades 7 to 10 and this year, participants will learn how to code for an Alexa device.

In partnership with the Ontario Network for Women in Engineering (ONWIE), the University of Windsor's Faculty of Engineering annually hosts a coding workshop for girls in the community as part of a province-wide series.

Go CODE Girl aims to educate, inspire, and equip girls with the digital skills, confidence, and resources needed to pursue education in some of the fastest growing industries — technology, computing, and engineering.

Participants do not need an Alexa device. Register now before this popular event reaches full capacity: www.uwindsor.ca/engineering/684/go-code-girl.
