Learning Village Hosting Elementary Girls' Geek Day Feb. 16

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 across the area during the school year. An average of 60 students routinely attend Girls' Geek Days, with events held in various local schools.
