 The U.S. Labor Department estimated that there will be 1.4 million job openings for computer-related occupations this decade, and the median salary for people with a computer-science degree ranges from $80,000-$100,000. Did your eyes just light up? Get this- only 12% of recent computer science and computer-engineering graduates are women! The 100 Girls of Code of Columbia want to change this. Meet these awesome makers on June 6 as they share info on their fun and interactive workshops where they’ll introduce computer programming, website construction, games and so much more.  Columbia Mini Maker Faire attendees can also create a binary code magnet of the first letter in their first name using a binary alphabet key, a blank grid, and crayons.
