ProjectCSGIRLS-Yahoo Chicago Workshop

Time: 10am - 1pm

Location: AOL Chicago Office

Workshop Leader: Shreya Karpoor

The ProjectCSGIRLS Chicago Workshop, held in partnership with Yahoo, is a free, half-day event focused on web development for social good. Register now at!

This workshop aims to teach students how to build a website for social good using HTML/CSS. The girls will learn about the web development process by identifying a social problem—such as educational problems or mental health problems—and walking through the web development process. The workshop also features a panel of Yahoo staff for a Q&A session. By the end of the workshop, they will have starter code to take home and work on. We hope they will learn more about the power of technology!
