Made With Code by Google
Made With Code by Google
A Google field trip for Girls. Mayor Rochelle Robinson in attendance.

Google's initiative "Made with Code" is an effort to inspire more girls to peruse a career in the field of computer science.  Along with the recent release of the movie "Hidden Figures", Google hosted an event at AMC Parkway Pointe 15 to inspire young women to view coding as a means to pursue their dreams. Twenty CHMS girls, along with 80 more from surrounding DCSS middle schools were selected to participate in a coding activity where they had the opportunity to work alongside Google computer programmers from around the country to learn basic coding skills and develop digital messages about equality, one of the central themes in the award-winning movie Hidden Figures. At the conclusion of the coding activity, students will be treated to a free screening of "Hidden Figures".  This event is provided for your student at no cost.  Mayor Rochelle Robinson was also in attendance to participate in this unique opportunity.
