Cupcakes & Computers

Moms (or Dads) bring your elementary and middle school girls to the CRTC Women In Tech Forum's Cupcakes & Computers to help get girls interested and excited about computers and technology. We will have age based activities for the girls along with pizza and of course... cupcakes!

Show & Tell: Got something tech related to brag about? Come prepared to "toot your horn" as we'll have a sharing session to spread the word on attendees techie-talents! Let us know if you have something to share in the "Additional Comments" section of the event registration as well as the ages of the girls who will be participating.

This event is FREE for CRTC Members and Friends.

The Rails Girls Installation Party
will be taking place along side the C&C event. More information and registration for the Rails Girls workshop on Saturday, October 11th available here!


How much does the event cost? Nothing thanks to our Sponsors /training/etc and IntelliGenesis

Who is this intended for? Elementary and middle school girls with computer skills and/or curiosity. If you are under 15 years old, please bring a parent or guardian with you.

Do I need to bring anything? Just bring your experience and curiosity. You'll have a chance to brag about a tech related accomplishment and we'll provide the pizza and cupcakes!

Can boys attend? Sure, but you need to be accompanied by an interested girl. Also, women and girls are given priority in the registration process.

Why are you doing this? There's no denying there's a shortage of tech talent to fill ever-growing tech jobs. Historically tech careers have been male dominated. This is our small attempt at getting more girls involved in technology to fill the regional pipeline with awesome tech talent.Young girls need to see successful women in tech related fields so that they can visualize a future in tech for themselves.
