Girls Who Code

Two different club offerings:

  • Elementary school students
  • Middle school and high school students
Girls Who Code Club, for grades 3-5, starts September 17th. Sign up now! Use the club code WI6559 here.
 

Girls Who Code 3rd-5th Grade Clubs are a community of girls who actively design, code, read and explore the power of computing science together.

Each meeting will include fun, interactive activities that are unique to Girls Who Code. A typical meeting stars with girls reading together from the Girls Who Code book, which leads to a discussion and a creative challenge. Some challenges are done online and some are “unplugged” but all include the qualities of bravery, resilience, and computational thinking.

Join Today! Fall sessions start September 17th.
