Miami-Dade Economic Advocacy Trust (MDEAT) brings the San Francisco-based nonprofit to Miami in an effort to educate girls in the Miami area about the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) areas.
Black Girls CODE, a rapidly expanding Bay Area nonprofit, launches its Miami Chapter on Tuesday, October 29th, 2013, with a kickoff event open to the public.

Meek Entrepreneurial Education Center, 6300 NW 7th Avenue, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., in Liberty City.
Founded in 2011, Black Girls CODE aims to lower the barriers of entry to women of color in tech careers by increasing high-quality educational resources to students, providing them with mentors and affordable classes. To date, the nonprofit has educated more than 2,000 girls in computer programming in more than 10 cities throughout the United States and expanded to Johannesburg, South Africa.
The first Miami Black Girls CODE workshop, which is designed to expose young girls to computer coding through the development of a website, is scheduled for Saturday, November 23, 2013, at the Carrie P. Meek Entrepreneurial Education Center, beginning 10 a.m.
The public is encouraged to attend the kick-off event and sign-up for the workshop and volunteer opportunities associated with Black Girls CODE.
