MOORHEAD—A tech camp in the metro is hoping to inspire young women to break the stereotype—and later, pursue careers in STEM fields.
"Crack the Code" from uCodeGirl is helping teen girls get involved in male-dominated fields like engineering or math.
This week, 40 young girls are learning about how to be a leader, along with skills like coding in the 2 week long camp.
They start by coming up with a problem, and then spend the rest of time cracking the code on how to fix it.
"I founded uCodeGirl for the same purpose of bringing girls together, and to see this many girls come committed to take a two week session on coding, it's really amazing." says uCodeGirl Next year, the organization hopes to expand the program to 1-hundred students.
