Tech literacy and learning to code for girls in middle and high school in Portland, OR

A friend asked about programs suitable for a 10 year old and a 14 year old girl in the Portland area.

Here’s what I came up with:

As far as things that are already underway: http://www.chicktech.org/ has the most stuff for the 14-year-old

Looks like it happened in January: http://www.chicktech.org/participants/workshops/

Next there’s FreeGeek: http://www.freegeek.org/

Their “adoption” program is interesting because you learn how to put together your own computer. Highly recommended.

There’s online programming courses offered through ORVED: http://www.orved.org/

What did I miss?

To create not a block, but an inline code span, use backticks:

Here is some inline `code`.
