Computing is where the jobs are but women and girls are being left behind.
Women make up 50% of the Canadian workforce but less than 25% of STEM jobs.
We know that parents, educators, and girls are looking for support and connection during these challenging times. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has led to school closures and significant disruption to daily life, Girls Who Code is making CS educational activities available for download free of charge, to anyone who wants to access them.

You can't be what you can't see.
We created free lesson plans featuring women in tech for teachers to use wherever they fit into the school day—from math to history to computer science. Using these lesson plans, students can explore the hidden history of women in tech, and uncover how to think like a computer scientist.
