AT&T is currently hosting a Girls Who Code Summer Immersion Program at our offices in Los Angeles (in addition to 5 of our other offices across the country). The 7-week program provides female high school students with skills in coding, app development and web design, as well as field trips to relevant companies so they can experience what careers in these fields are really like. On July 8, the LA girls took their first field trip to Fullscreen Media, which is located in the heart of “Silicon Beach”, the city’s hub for tech startups.
Fullscreen Media (Fullscreen) is an exciting, social-first entertainment company that is part of Otter Media, a joint venture between AT&T and the Chernin Group. They recently launched a video streaming platform that offers original and licensed video content for millennials along with engaging social features. Recognizing that the Girls Who Code participants are their target audience, Fullscreen provided the girls with free access to the streaming app for a week leading up to their field trip and asked that they come prepared to provide feedback.
