Girls Who Code for Grades 6-12

Girls in grades 6 to 12 are welcome to join us for this school year to learn Python using our CircuitPython Express kits. If you are new, just show up with your student and we'll spend time getting them enrolled in the class.

Membership in the club is free, no coding experience is necessary. The club is open to all female identifying students in grades 6th - 12th.
We will be meeting during the school year on Thursday evenings.

Girls Who Code is a nonprofit organization which aims to support and increase the number of women in computer science by equipping young women with the necessary computing skills to pursue 21st century opportunities. The organization works toward closing the gender employment difference in technology, and to change the image of what a programmer looks like.
