Fire Pixel Partners with Humana and YWCA for Tech Camp

Fire Pixel is participating in Tech Camp, a series of programming classes coordinated by the YWCA TechGYRLS®.  YWCA TechGYRLS® seeks to empower young girls in the areas of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and to encourage them to pursue careers within these fields.  These classes were made available to Humana employees’ children, boys and girls, to learn basic computer programming with a program called Scratch, a free educational program created by the MIT Media Lab.  The classes are being taught by Caleb Prenger, a programmer at Fire Pixel.  Special thanks to Rachael Paulsen of YWCA for coordinating and Jessica French for helping to making the connection.
