We’re delighted to announce that we are one of 28 organizations in 16 countries receiving a 2016 Google RISE Award! Google has made it a priority to inspire young people to not just use technology, but to create it. Google RISE supports outstanding organizations that engage girls and underrepresented students in extracurricular computer science programs.
Google RISE stands for Roots in Science and Engineering. Awards are designed to promote and support Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM) and Computer Science (CS) education initiatives.
The funding from this award allowed us to run our program in 2016 which included a Code Camp and several other coding modules.
