According to the National Center for Women and Informational Technology, only 18% of computer science graduates in 2015 were female. And a recent article in Science found that by age 6 girls are less likely than boys to identify themselves as "really, really smart." The goal of the free Confident Coders program is to engage students in confidence-boosting and coding activities in elementary school, so that they pursue computer science opportunities as they get older. The program is geared toward girls in grades 3-5, but can be easily adapted. Walk away with the knowledge and materials needed to implement this program in their school. This session will be facilitated by Heather Drolet, a Concord technology integrator who was selected by the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation as the 2016-2017 recipient of the Christa McAuliffe Sabbatical.
