Sat March 11: Free 'How to Code Websites' event for Teenage Girls.

A free coding website event for teenage girls (13-18 years) and their parents will take place in Dublin City University (DCU) on this Saturday (March 11th).
Girls Hack Ireland, which is organised by the Insight Centre for Data Analytics at DCU, includes a free bus return for Galway participants to and from Dublin. The bus will leave the NUIG campus at 7.15am on Saturday morning, returning from DCU at 4.30pm that evening.
Female participants must be accompanied by their parents to the event.

No prior knowledge of coding is required. Known as a ‘Hackathon’ it is when large numbers of people work together in teams to create assigned web projects. In this case participants will learn about high level web design through building comic strips. The event was first organized in 2015 and involves female students from all over Ireland undertaking designated coding tasks. The aim is to inspire girls to consider the career opportunities that are available in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics or what is often referred to as STEM.
