Loading Events

The digital world is all around us! Almost everything we use – our phones, food, transport, currency and healthcare – all rely on communication with computers.

Coding ability is becoming a sought-after job skill – and not just for students who want to work as computer programmers.

NYSCI’s latest virtual STEM Night, ‘Coding: A core skill for your future career’, will take place on September 30, 2021, on Zoom, from 4:30pm-6pm.

As demand for workers with coding skills increases across industries, knowing how to code can help to improve your earning potential in many fields.

In this STEM Night, we will talk to professionals who aren’t necessarily full time programmers or developers, but who use coding as part of their jobs! Topics we will explore include:

  • Who should learn coding and why?
  • Why is coding so important for the future?
  • What kinds of jobs include coding?
  • The top skills you’ll need to code
  • Opportunities for students to learn coding and gain career experience
    This virtual event will feature a STEM Panel, as well as breakout conversations focused around fields that utilize coding skills – giving youth participants the opportunity to connect with industry professionals.
