Tuesday night is a free event in Los Alamos designed to support students in learning to code and in pursuing careers in information technology. The Everyone Does IT kickoff event features activities that encourage students in grades 2 and up to learn to code and features clips from the film CODE Debugging the Gender Gap. Learn about supercomputing, software, and secure code. Adults will learn about mentorship opportunities and are encouraged to invite a young person to inspire.
This is the first event in an ongoing effort to encourage diversity in Tech, especially for girls and minorities. This free event runs from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Los Alamos Nature Center.
The Los Alamos National Laboratory Associate Directorate for Business Innovation (ADBI), Associate Directorate for Theory, Simulation, & Computation (ADTSC), and Community Partnerships Office (CPO) are joining forces with the Los Alamos community to present an event that builds awareness of and takes action against the diversity problem in the IT workforce.
