'Black Girls Code' Teaches Skills For Future Careers

Local young girls may have learned some new skills that could help them launch successful careers down the road.

Black Girls Code is a national organization dedicated to introducing girls to coding and encouraging them to explore careers in science, technology, engineering, and math.

Google Fiber helped bring Saturday's pop-up event to the Downtown Nashville Library.

The class, called "Build a Mobile App in a Day,” gave more than 75 girls the chance to learn coding skills that could lead to future careers.
