SAN BERNARDINO, CA- The world of cyber security was introduced to about 250 Girl Scouts at Cal State San Bernardino last week. Sup. Gonzales joined the closing ceremony to award badges to the girls that completed the weeklong day camp that aims to help girls become more comfortable with math and science.
Fifth-through-eighth grade girls learned the basics of coding, how to take apart and reassemble computers, and became familiar with the tech industry and the career paths it can offer.
Representatives from Google, Apple, Facebook, Mitre Corp., U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and Northrop-Grumman met and shared their experiences with the participants as part of the camp. Rep. Pete Aguilar delivered a special message to the camp participants via video.
The event was offered by the Girl Scouts of San Gorgonio Council with support from the National Science Foundation. For more information, contact the council at (909) 307-6555 or (800) 400-4475.
