November Nonfiction – Career Paths

Tech girls rule! I’m a huge proponent of promoting computer science careers to girls – evidenced by our weekly “Girls Who Code” club (every Monday at 3pm), and my determination to build on my beginner coding skills by taking courses in programming (“while” or “for” loops, anyone?). We recently acquired two volumes from Careers for Tech Girls book series: Technology and Engineering. Code away, ladies.

Any student thinking of pursuing a career in trade can read on how to become a carpenter or an electrician. Also, be sure to bone up on “Teen Guide to Credit and Debt,” which informs kids on the dangers of credit cards, the dangers of debt, and how to save and invest wisely.
