Women are still unrepresented nationwide in the fields of Science and Engineering, but a local summer camp in Chico is looking to change all that. Action News Now reporter Stephanie Lin sat down with the campers of Girls Who Code...

Chico's tech community has come together again this year to support the STEM and leadership education of young girls. The girls have been heads down, coding, designing, and developing marketing plans all week at the headquarters of Build.com. The company is one of Chico's startup success stories.

Nationwide numbers for the STEM industry may still show women outnumbered by men. But Chico is working to change those figures. For more information on how you can sign up your child for the program, you can check out gocodechico.com.
