AT&T Gives $10,000 for All Girls Code Camp

As part of the growing nationwide effort to bridge the gender gap in the fields of STEM, an AT&T Foundation grant of $10,000 has been awarded to the Discovery Center of Idaho’s “AT&T All Girls Coding Camp."

The grant will support the 2019 camp where underserved girls between 4th and 8th grade will explore STEM careers and interact with female role models in the field.

This is the third consecutive year that we have worked with the Discovery Center to put on this popular camp. By holding a girls-only camp, the Discovery Center of Idaho creates a relaxed, non-judgmental environment for girls to focus on learning the foundation of coding and empower them to pursue STEM careers. They also plan to provide learning geared toward computer science in today’s dynamic tech world.

Ensuring girls have positive support, resources and mentors to pursue careers in STEM continues to be an AT&T focal point and passion — Idaho’s technological future will depend on it.
