The Girl Code Report
K.R. Mangalam World School, Gurugram organized a workshop for the girls of class X by the NGO “The Girl Code”. To ensure empowerment of girls and equity in the IT field, the workshop introduced girls to programming and its scope as a career opportunity.
It was a two-day workshop. On the first day, students were given books for writing their own codes for programming. They signed up in the website of the NGO and were taught coding through different levels of difficulty. The second day was an interactive session as the students were asked multiple questions. Everyone got an opportunity to speak up and address their doubts. Students were asked to crack the mock codes and the ones who would answer first, were rewarded.
Indeed it proved to be an enriching session as the students had not come across coding in languages like python in earlier classes and this was a subject that would be prove beneficial to them in the future.
