Girls Who Code Club - Gr 3-5
Girls Who Code is a national non-profit organization working to close the gender gap in technology. Our programs educate, equip, and inspire girls with the computing skills they’ll need to pursue 21st century opportunities. Our Clubs Program is free and open to 3rd through 5th graders. Space is limited to 20 students at each school, so please register early. Girls learn to use computer science to impact their community and join our sisterhood of supportive peers and role models.
If you don't know how to code, we'll teach you. If you do know how to code, we'll teach you to code better. GWC is not a program for elite students only -- anybody can learn to code.
Key Concepts in Coding: We focus on the fundamentals of coding that apply to all programming languages, and are important no matter what girls decide to build. - Collaborative Design: It’s not enough to just write code -- we teach girls to work together as a team to imagine products and come up with plans to design, build, and test what they make. - Personal Strengths: We know that being a great computer scientist requires more than knowing how to code - it’s also about growing the strengths below! In a Club, girls build these qualities alongside their coding skills to help them define what success means to them, and reach it.
