Ladies Learning Code, an organisation in Canada that holds workshops on Web development and computer skills, has expanded with a new programme: Girls Learning Code. Organisers aim to provide fun and educational opportunities that will expose girls to career possibilities in science, technology, engineering and math and help close the gender gap in engineering and computer studies in college. "We're trying to position technology to girls in a way that helps them see it as a creative outlet, and something that can help them change the world," said Director Laura Plant.
