Ladies Learning Code’s latest initiative is the “code:mobile.”
The code:mobile is a travelling computer lab on wheels, which will drive across Canada in the summer of 2016 to inspire and empower Canadian kids to become passionate builders of technology.
The code:mobile will bring hands-on, interactive technology education to an estimated 10,000 kids from May to September 2016, travelling approximately 35,000km coast to coast.
Ladies Learning Code is crowdfunding on Indiegogo to support the initiative.
“The code:mobile is our big bold move to inspire the next generation of technologists,” said Laura Plant, Ladies Learning Code’s Co-Executive Director. “Since its inception in 2011, Ladies Learning Code has held over 600 workshops and events and reached over 24,000 learners across the country and we keep wanting to push that impact. In May, we announced a goal to teach 200,000 Canadian women and youth to code by 2020 and the code:mobile will help us make a big dent in our goal.”
