Girls get coding

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

Meg Munn MP was delighted to welcome to parliament Ella, Billie and Ellie, with their teacher, from Meadowhead, her old school in Sheffield. They came for the ‘Girls Get Coding’ event, established to raise the profile of coding skills and encourage all young people, but particularly girls, to learn the basics of computer programming.  

The young people work on a game and learn how to include various elements to make the game challenging. When Meg called in to see them they were already proficient and were able to show off their coding skills and demonstrated some basic programming.

Meg said:

"We know that the IT sector is very bad at encouraging women to work in it, and the numbers continue to decline. Events such as ‘Girls Get Coding’ encourage girls to take part and give them space and the confidence to become confident.”

‘Girls Get Coding’ is the UK-wide campaign to encourage girls aged 9 to 12 to show off their coding skills and learn the basics of computer programming - for more information about the campaign visit:  http://makeithappy.cc4g.net/
