“I do some coding in school. We do simple coding and nothing as complex as this. I wanna learn more about it and get better at it.”
–Siri, Middle School Student
“Coding is something new that Asia has never thought of doing before Maydm came along. I really think it inspired her and is a door opener for her in today’s society. This can get her far in life. Her mother and I are proud of her being a part of something like this that will benefit her in the future.”
“In Code Madison Forward I felt excitement because finally I could take something that I loved and thoroughly enjoy, coding…. My sister enjoyed participating Girls Coding Day and seeing her excited and gushing about all that happened was awesome.”
–Abdullah, High School Student
Girls Coding Day
Over 100 young girls came together with Maydm at the Madison Central Public library to discover and explore the world of coding. They tinkered in Swift Playground, built apps in MIT AppInventor, and created stunning websites through codepen.io. This is Girls Coding Day.
Founder and Executive Director Winnie Karanja, MSc. says it best:
“There are women who live in this world. And so if we’re not at the table, if we’re not building, if we don’t have the skills to build the kind of products that we want to see, there’s something that’s missing.”
