January 27, 2022
Red River College Polytechnic and SkipTheDishes have partnered to deliver a new course in IT coding and programming for young women in high school. The Technovation Girls Manitoba course takes 12 weeks to complete and provides participants with hands-on, applied learning opportunities creating an app to meet a need within their community. “RRC Polytech is creating more opportunities to engage with young learners in Manitoba and broaden their options for future careers,” says Kathleen Kerr, Dean of the RRC Polytech’s School of Continuing Education. “It’s important for the College to empower underrepresented groups – which in the tech industry, includes women – to build their skills and know their perspectives and talent is needed.” RRC (MB)
