Whirlpool Foundation Continues Support for Michigan Council of Women in Technology Foundation (MCWT)


NORTHAMPTON, MA / ACCESSWIRE / July 1, 2024 / Whirlpool Corporation

Join the Whirlpool Foundation in celebrating a second year supporting the Michigan Council of Women in Technology Foundation (MCWT) STEM event – Girls Rock IT. This spring, local girls from grades 2-8 dove into the exciting worlds of coding and app development. Elementary students explored coding with Scratch, while middle schoolers built their own apps using MIT App Inventor – all in one day!

Parents and guardians were encouraged to tap in and many attended a session on Internet Safety and Careers in Technology to help equip them to support the girls’ tech aspirations.

With a high demand for tech talent and women still underrepresented in the field, Whirlpool Foundation remains committed to showcasing inspiring Whirlpool Corp. IT role models and helping young girls crack the code on promising tech careers in Michigan.
