This week I’m very excited to be volunteering with an incredible organization, Ladies Learning Code, as a mentor for their Girls Learning Code camp on Wearable Technology at the innovative MaRS Discovery District.
Ladies Learning Code
In case you’re not familiar with it, Ladies Learning Code is an organization that believes in educating women and youth in technology through workshops, camps and after school programs. During the summer, they host Kids Learning Code and Girls Learning Code camps for kids and youth ages 6 to 17 years old on various topics relating to digital literacy.
Wearable Technology Camp
This week I will be volunteering as a “marketing guru” with the camp on wearable technology, a personal interest of mine:
“Ever wonder what it would be like to high five someone and have sounds explode from your palms? How about having a keyboard that you can wear on your thighs? Wearable technology is quickly evolving into our world today and drastically changing how we think about social spaces and everyday interaction. At this camp, the sky’s the limit. Girls will have the opportunity to be a part of this ever-changing and exciting field!” – Wearable Technology Camp
Though I don’t know exactly what this week will have in store for me, the campers and my fellow mentors, I view this as an incredible learning opportunity and a chance to contribute to an organization I admire. I look forward to sharing my adventure with you next week!
On Wednesday, look out for the first post in the An App for That series. Stay tuned!
