Girls Who Code is a national non-profit working to close the gender gap in technology.
Clubs are free after-school programs for 6-8th grade girls to use computer science to impact their community and join our sisterhood of supportive peers and role models.
Sisterhood. Club girls join a safe and supportive environment of peers and role models and learn to see themselves as computer scientists. Beyond the Club, girls can tap into an alumni network of tens of thousands of girls across the country who are using computer science to solve problems they care about.
Code. Clubs learn the concepts of loops, variables, conditionals, and functions that form the basis for all programming languages –– whether they want to build a website, an app, or a robot. Returning Clubs girls can deepen their programming knowledge through extended activity sets.
Impact. Club girls work in teams to design and build a Computer Science “CS” Impact Project that solves real world problems they care about through code. (girlswhocode.com)
