Whether you’re at home or in the office, you deserve a more productive, less stressful IT experience. New York Geek Girls Computer Services has been helping since 2005.
Are you concerned about the safety and security of your systems? Are you frustrated by annoying “glitches” that block your workflow? Are you less than thrilled with your current IT support?
We must find a way to include girls in computing, without excluding boys at the same time. Below are a few tips that we have learned on getting girls interested in computers.
Last year, my engineering teacher, Ms. Ross invited me to the 2015 New York City Girls Computer Science and Engineering Conference. Entering the conference with only 2 other girls, I realized the lack of diversity in the room, not representing our city full of diversity and rich culture. Organizers recommended Girls Who Code as a way to break the gender gap and diversify the field of technology by including females.
I heard about Girls Who Code by searching online for courses that teach girls computer science and thankfully, GWC popped up! I have always had a curiosity for technology projects, and have been inspired by female tech leaders like Sheryl Sandberg who motivate young girls to learn about computer science, so I decided to apply for the Summer Immersion Program to pursue that curiosity. When I was accepted into the program, I researched the program and expected it to be a rigorous yet fun experience with like-minded teens, and so far, it has been just that and so much more!
