WHAT IS THE SUMMER IMMERSION PROGRAM?
This 2-week virtual program teaches girls and non-binary students the computer science skills they need to make an impact in their community while preparing for a career in tech. Participants will get exposure to tech jobs, meet women in tech careers, and join a supportive sisterhood grounded in tech.
WHAT IS THE SELF-PACED PROGRAM?
This 6-week virtual program teaches girls and non-binary students the computer science skills they need to make an impact in their community while preparing for a career in tech. Participants will get exposure to tech jobs, meet women in tech careers, and join a supportive sisterhood. For students who are more advanced with Computer Science, or who completed SIP last year, we will be offering more advanced courses in Python with a focus on cybersecurity.
Computing is where the jobs are but women and girls are being left behind.
Women make up 50% of the UK workforce but less than 15% 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.
