Girls Who Code

Girls Who Code logoSCSC has recently partnered with Girls Who Code to promote computer science to area elementary, middle and high school girls. Girls Who Code clubs can be run by schools or other community organizations. Girls Who Code has already reached 90,000 girls across the country to help girls unlock their bravery, resilience, purpose and creativity as they learn to code. Curriculum, resources and tutorials are available to help get you started. Join the movement to increase gender parity in tech by starting your own Girls Who Code Club in your community.

To start a Club, you need:

  • A facilitator: An adult must be responsible for facilitating the Club through the Girls Who Code curriculum for 1–2 hours each week and communicating with Girls Who Code. Club Facilitators can be teachers, computer scientists, librarians, parents or volunteers from any background or field. Many Facilitators have NO technical experience and learn to code alongside their Club members with the help of our comprehensive resources and ongoing support!
  • Equipment: Computers and internet must be available for each Club member in 6–12 Grade Clubs. 3–5 Grade Clubs have the option to either be online or offline.
  • Space: Clubs can be hosted in schools, universities, libraries, community centers, faith-based organizations or nonprofits. There must be enough space to host the Club, such as a classroom or computer lab.
