Our adult programming offers women (and men) hands-on, project-based learning experiences that are designed to give beginners the skills and confidence they need to become digital creators.
Our workshops and educational events are open to adults of all ages. Workshops cover everything from introductory HTML & CSS, to WordPress, Python, Ruby, web design and more. They are especially popular and successful because of the 4:1 ratio of students to volunteer instructors at every workshop, which is only possible because of overwhelming support from the technology and startup communities in the cities where we operate.

“I'm passionate about advocating women in STEM occupations! I'm also a huge advocate of digital literacy and volunteer on the SMBYEG committee. LLC is a great workshop series and I certainly don't mind helping it out.”
“I stumbled across it while researching for a blog post, and thought if it ever came to Edmonton I would volunteer. The original post is here http://womeningamestudies.com/a-movement-encouraging-girls-to-code-and-make-games/ and portrays some of my excitement about creating female friendly spaces in tech.”
