Hackergals from all over the city will join together for two weeks of coding fun. Together we will learn the basics of Python and create exciting projects that bring together core concepts.

In this camp, students will complete a series of mini-projects designed to teach the basic syntax, structure, and process of writing programs in Python. These projects will include data-types, variables, conditionals, loops, lists, functions, algorithms, and debugging. Students create a mid-terminology project at course completion. 

Participants will hear from female guest speakers in the technology industry, meet like minded friends and explore their potential in code. Hackergals will be rewarded a certificate of completion and tons of Hackergal swag.

Join us this summer on empowering girls to pursue the possibilities in code!

A hot breakfast, snacks and refreshments will be provided at 8:00am each morning. Camp starts at 9:00am.

Amanda Lang is an anchor on Bloomberg TV Canada and the acclaimed author of Power of Why. In her latest book, The Beauty of Discomfort, Amanda wonders if we've made life too comfortable for our kids. She argues that we need to start pushing children outside their comfort zones.

It Starts with One: Be Her Champion

Organized by: Status of Women Canada
Date: On-Going
Registration: Take the pledge here

Event Description:

On April 16, 2015, the Honourable Dr. K. Kellie Leitch, Minister of Labour and Minister of Status of Women, launched the It Starts with One – Be Her Champion campaign. The campaign urges leaders in all fields to make the commitment to champion a woman.

The It Starts with One campaign is designed to engage leaders in both the private and public sectors as champions for women by taking a pledge to participate in formal or informal mentoring efforts. Canadians can make their It Starts with One pledge at women.gc.ca/startswithone. The website also provides information on the benefits of championing, links to formal mentorship programs in Canada, and a toolkit for initiating championing relationships.

  • The Government of Canada is urging leaders in all fields to take the pledge to make a difference in a woman's career or business by being her champion.
  • There are enormous benefits for women who are mentored, including accelerated career development and improved business survival rates.
    Championing takes mentorship a step further. In addition to providing advice and support, champions stand up for their mentees, promote them in their networks and expose them to new opportunities.
  • By pledging to Be her Champion you are joining a growing movement to help women reach the highest levels of achievement. Their success is good for women, good for the economy and good for Canada.
  • Once you have taken the It Starts with One pledge, you can keep the momentum going by challenging your friends, family and colleagues to do the same.
