CodeCrush

crush5Innovation- The introduction of new ideas, technologies, or ways to do things. This was the theme carried through the 5 days of the CodeCrush Immersion Experience attended by Jenna Bellmyer (8th grade) and Linda Sweeting (technology teacher) at UNO. Thirty girls and their mentor teachers from Nebraska, Iowa, and South Dakota attended the event. Sessions were presented on such topics as IT Innovation, Cybersecurity, Mobile Development, and Bioinfomatics. Microsoft representatives made an appearance to show the latest technology including Xbox One, Kinnect, Surface tablets, and Windows Phones. The girls took a field trip to the Henry Doorly Zoo to learn how technology is used in the care of the animals as well as a tour behind the scenes at the aquarium. Women in the IT field, both in college and those who had graduated came to speak of their experiences and give advice. The week ended with an outing to watch the Maverick hockey team play and win their game Saturday night. It was a fun-filled, informational, exhausting but totally worth it experience!
