St. Anne's-Belfield School Hosting Feb. 16 Girls' Geek Day for Area Elementary Girls

Charlottesville, Va., Feb. 4, 2019 - St. Anne's-Belfield School will host a Girls' Geek Day for area elementary school girls on Saturday, Feb. 16. Students are invited to join this free community event designed to spark girls' interests in technology and computing, and will be able to access fun, collaborative, hands-on investigations into topics ranging from robotics to engineering to mathematics and more. 
The first Girls' Geek Day was held in 2013, the creation of Albemarle County Schools teacher Paula White. Today, White and Kim Wilkens, St. Anne's-Belfield School computer science coordinator and founder of local non-profit Tech-Girls, work together with community organizations and volunteers to hold and support monthly events during the school year. An average of 60 students routinely attend Girls' Geek Days, with events held in various local schools.
To register for the Feb. 16 event, please visit www.tech-girls.org. Students in Grade 3 or below must have a parent with them during the event.
