Montana Code Girls - Free Afterschool Coding Academy For Girls Starts In Kalispell On Oct. 6

October 3, 2016View for printing

Industrial engineer at NASA and Lockheed Martin Marianne Smith has volunteered to start up Kalispell's branch of Montana Code Girls , an offshoot of Big Sky Code Academy that seeks to connect girls and young women with technology. Starting Oct. 6, there will be free coding classes for girls ages 9 to 19, every Thursday at Sykes Diner. The class will tie together coding and entrepreneurship opportunities.

Montana Code Girls' mission is to empower girls' interest in science, technology, engineering, and math, abbreviated as STEM. Many of the local schools have begun integrating coding and computer languages into their curriculum, but are still having some trouble attracting girls to the classes.
