Milligan College will host Girl Scout event Feb. 8

Published 8:55 am Monday, January 20, 2020

Junior, Cadette, Senior, and Ambassador Girl Scouts are invited to Milligan College on Feb. 8 for a full day of hands-on programming workshops that build interest in the technology and computer science field for the young women of today.

Come learn more about the path to thinking like a programmer! Not only will girls code their own program to take home with them, but girls will also have the chance to explore multiple career opportunities that require coding skills as the application. Careers in game development, medical and biotechnology, cybersecurity, cryptography, and software development for business will be discussed with examples.

Girls will earn the Think Like a Programmer award. Girls will also earn a custom Milligan patch made just for this event. Awards and patches will be presented at the end of the day.
