During the pandemic, Oak Ridge Computer Science girls offered virtual classes and camps. Some of the girls at this camp had only met virtually before. "I thought it was really, really fun! Getting to work with people who I've seen before online was really cool. The volunteers were fantastic too! They worked out a lot of issues we had and were fun to be around. Overall, the camp was a great interactive experience and you could really see what your code could do in real life, and how it could help with real issues. Plus, the lunches were awesome " says Maggie, as raising 9th grader.
We loved running an in-person event again. As we move forward Oak Ridge Computer Science Girls will be offering in-person and virtual events and dive into experimenting with hybrid type events.
Thank you so much to our counselors Amelie and Bella and our photographer Yvonne.
