Girls In Stem and Technology Summer Camp

Today in 2017, skills that are hot commodities on a resume have changed drastically from what they were 10 years ago. At the forefront of those skills is tech! Coding and app development has become one of the most valuable skills a professional can carry into the real world. Technology summer courses can provide you with skills and background knowledge that could open many doors with cutting edge companies. Beside the fact that these skills could potentially earn you an incredible amount of money, there are many other benefits to learning how to code or design websites/apps at an early age. As years pass, there are increasingly more opportunities to learn these skills such as technology summer camps specifically designed for middle school or high school students. 

The most interesting change in tech is the lack of an age requirement. In other words, your age doesn’t matter as long as you know how to speak and write the most current coding and design languages. More often, middle and high school students are starting successful companies with a good idea and the ability to build a website and mobile app around it. Even if these companies don't succeed, the experience of starting a company at such a young age is bound to carry a student further than they would have been capable of without it.  

This is truly the art of the modern age and having the technical skills to compete in this world is a choice that will never go unnoticed. By learning how to code and design websites/apps, you will be equipped for a long-term career.
