Apple is also building on its commitment to education with a new partnership with Girls Who Code to expand learning opportunities for young women.
Using the Everyone Can Code Curriculum, 90,000 girls and Girls Who Code Club facilitators in all 50 states can learn to use Swift, Apple’s easy to learn programming language that hundreds of thousands of apps are built with.
Swift training will also be provided for club leaders to help expand the number and reach of coding clubs.
Apple supports educational opportunities for students of all ages and backgrounds, and advocates for girls’ right to access the same learning opportunities as their male counterparts through its Developer Academies, Everyone Can Code curriculum and work with the Malala Fund and National Center for Women and Information Technology.
“We’re excited to support Girls Who Code as they empower girls to be the developers and tech innovators of tomorrow.”
Visitors can also attend Art Lab at Apple Michigan Avenue with Emily Grasile, the Chicago Field Museum’s chief curiosity correspondent, who will teach participants to incorporate small specimens from the Field Museum’s collection into vast landscapes using the Procreate app on iPad Pro and Apple Pencil.
