The workshop was designed to support a network of girls and supported other girls to equip them with digital skills and was a huge accomplishment as a community model in 2018. In the session, we used to conduct a series of Hour of code programming sessions and reached nearly 650 girls from Kathmandu, Lalitpur, and Bhaktapur districts. This is a programming workshop program initiated by CODE.org that focuses on an introduction to computer science, designed to demystify code and show that anybody can learn the basics in an hour. We customized the workshop to educate and aware young girls targeted especially of the age group 15-25 years from Kathmandu valley.
In today's world, technology has become a prime force for development and economic growth. This coding workshop has motivated many young girls to get inspired as well as be capable of using a new era of technological advances. The main purpose of this program is to make one feel technology as a more approachable domain rather than an isolated notion and give them a peek at what wonders can be done using basic coding. And they could do something within an hour, then they can do a lot if they invest some months in digital/STEAM careers.
