Overview

Girls Who Code offers free after-school programs for 3rd-5th and 6th-12th grade girls to join our sisterhood of supportive peers and role models using computer science to change the world. These are our core values:

Sisterhood

Join a safe and 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 the girls care about.

Curriculum

Our curriculum is designed for students with a wide range of computer science experience. We have activities for girls with zero computer science experience all the way up to activities that introduce college-level concepts. The broad set of soft and hard skills we teach are:

  • Teamwork
  • Confidence
  • Time Management
  • Communication
  • Functions
  • Variables
  • Conditionals
  • Loops

What will I make or do?

As a central part of your Clubs experience, you’ll work with your Club on a Computer Science Impact Project, where you’ll use computer science to solve a problem relevant to your Club and community. Through this project, you’ll also learn the fundamental computer science concepts of loops, variables, conditionals and functions that form the basis for all computer programming languages while also building your teamwork and leadership skills.
