Code Art Miami highlights the creative side of coding and provides a vehicle to inspire girls and young women to learn to code and to showcase their creations. It also fosters community among the participating student groups and paves the way for future collaborations. The inaugural Code Art Miami event was held on February 6, 2016 at MAGIC. To further the cause of gender parity in computer science, proceeds were raised at the event for a scholarship fund for women enrolled in one of MDC MAGIC’s two-year animation or gaming programs. Amy Renshaw, Co-Founder and Executive Director at Code Art Miami (second from left) presented MAGIC students Nicole Lenz and Paula Torres with the 2016 Scholarships.
