This week, the Tulsa Regional STEM Alliance is hosting a computer coding camp for female students (4th- 9th grade) to give them extra exposure to quality science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education. 30 girls are learning all about computer programming through hands-on training and fun exercises on Chromebooks, provided by Google. In addition, Tulsa-area teachers are getting special training on how to incorporate basic computer science concepts into their lesson plans and how to mentor students interested in STEM projects.
On Friday afternoon, both the girls and teachers will share what they've learned in a fun presentation. Tulsa Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Deborah Gist will be in attendance.
