The U.S. Labor Department estimates that there will be 1.4 million job openings for computer-related occupations in the next ten years. Of the STEM fields, Computer Science and Computer Engineering have the highest median earnings for recent college graduates without advanced degrees. Currently, the median annual salary for a Computer Science degree ranges from $80,000 to $100,000. Only 12% of these positions are held by women. We want to change this!
Summer workshops will take place across Tennessee in 2014 to advance the technology skills of girls ages 12 to 18. Workshops will feature a computer programming intro, website development, gaming, and so much more.
