Girls Who Code Clubs are free after-school programs for 6-12th grade girls to use computer science to impact their community and join a sisterhood of supportive peers and role models. Clubs are led by Facilitators, who can be teachers, computer scientists, librarians, parents, or volunteers from any background or field. The curriculum is project-based and designed for students to use their coding skills to address real-life problems in their community.
“What we’re doing is working: most of our girls go on to major in computer science in college. When you teach girls to code or get them involved in STEM, they become change agents and can build apps, programs and movements to help tackle our country’s toughest problems,” CEO & Founder of Girls Who Code Reshma Saujani said. “We’re building a movement of women in STEM, hopefully enough women to really flood the gates.”
Yonkers Riverfront Library will be starting our next Girls Who Code club on Monday, February 26, 2018. Registration begins on February 13. Click here to register.
