Huntsville High School is getting ready for the Programming Challenge for Girls next week. Outreach Program Lead and student Julia Drewery says it’s open to all high school students in Muskoka and even from some other school boards.

The program competition is aimed at encouraging girls to pursue computer sciences, which Drewery says is a great initiative for someone like her who never got the push to study science or math when she was younger.

If you’re unsure if you should sign up, Drewery says you shouldn’t be afraid.
