Computer Science 4 Girls Day

(Date to be finalized)

 

Computer Science 4 Girls Day is a partnership event of DevCon and Oracle which is an effort to reach out to young girls and explain the importance of technology in today’s world. The workshop includes a session by Oracle Women Leaders on their career path, a discussion about careers in computer science and the importance of a good portfolio. The event targets to cater 4th year high schools girls to 1st year college girls taking up computer science, engineering or IT-related courses.

In venues where there are facilities of a lab available, Oracle Academy will conduct an Alice workshop for the girls. The girls will also be exposed to various tools and resources on self learning to help them grow and prosper.

Alice is a 3D educational software developed at Carnegie Melon University with the support from Oracle. This software is used by schools to teach animation and create simple educational games. By dragging and dropping graphic tiles containing standard programming statements, students develop programs that animate 3D objects that populate a virtual world. In the process, they sharpen their logical thinking and problem solving techniques. They also grasp basic object- oriented programming terminology and concepts such as procedure definition, algorithms, functions and conditional statements.

It enables a new way to think and learn by populating virtual worlds intelligently, breaking problem statements into small tasks, and drawing up algorithmic expressions which help in problem solving.

Following will be the outcomes of this workshop:

• Learn about careers in Computer Science 
• Engage in visual thinking, problem solving and logical thinking
• Create a small animation movie
• Understand career paths of successful women leaders
