GIRLS WHO CODE

Girls Who Code was founded with a single mission: to close the gender gap in technology.  Offering free after-school programs for 3rd-5th and 6th-12th grade girls to join a sisterhood of supportive peers and role models using computer science to change the world.

GIRLS WHO CODE CLUB PROGRAMS

Every Wednesday

March 6th - June 5th from 3:00 - 3:45 p.m.

GIRLS WHO CODE FOR 3RD - 5TH GRADERS

Girls Who Code is an after school club for girls grade 3rd through 5th who are interested in coding, robotics, and electronics. The club is for beginners to explore coding in a fun and friendly environment.

Our goal is to find opportunities for girls to be brave, creative, and supportive while actively working to close the technology gender gap.

What Will You Learn?
You and your friends will learn about the basics of computer science and some of the awesome women who use technology to create amazing things. You will also work together to create cool projects and complete challenges.

What Happens During a Club?
Each meeting will kick off exploring computer science and design. Then, we will complete fun, interactive activities that challenge you to unleash your creativity and personality.

Can You Join?
Yes! Anyone can join if you’re creative, curious, and want to learn more about how to make computers think. Whether you’re a beginner or a computer master, you’ll get to make new friends as you explore and learn together!

GIRLS WHO CODE FOR 6TH - 12TH GRADERS

Why Join Girls Who Code? The Problem: Computing is where the jobs are — and where they will be in the future — but girls are being left behind.

Girls Who Code is a free after-school program for 6th-12th grade girls to join a sisterhood of supportive peers and role models working to close the technology gender gap using computer science to change the world, and the core values are simple.

Sisterhood: A supportive environment of peers and role models where girls learn to see themselves as computer scientists.

Code:
Learn the concepts of loops, variables, conditionals and functions that form the basis for all programming languages.

Impact:
Work in teams to design a computer science impact project that solves real world problems that you actually care about.

The curriculum is designed for students with a wide range of computer science experience.

Every Wednesday

March 6th - June 5th from 4:00 - 4:45 p.m.
