100 Girls of Code, Oct. 15th, TechBirmingham

Facilitating growth is a strong suit for our southern city. As technology rises to the occasion to take over business, we ought to be preparing the younger generation for S.T.E.M. careers, and TechBirmingham is doing just that.

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) are the dominating industries to work in, but imagine how far ahead we will be once Gen. Z begins working.

This is a major focal point for TechBirmingham/TechAlabama. Not only is Jennifer Skjellum and Greg Wingo helping connect local business owners to others in the city, they are teaching our kids about the importance of STEM careers.

100 Girls of Code and Super Code Sundays are monthly workshops offered to youngsters interested in computer coding. With technology jobs focused in computer services and info tech. in high demand, it is important for us to expose them to the vast possibilities they will have in the near future.

Thanks to the volunteer help and Mrs. Skjellum’s expertise in teaching/coding, these programs have begun to flourish in Birmingham. Each month, same and new faces show up to their workshop and share the love for technology with each other.
