Girls Who Code Club Starts March 14 at Weston Public Library
Girls grade 6 and up are invited to join the Weston chapter of Girls Who Code, an international nonprofit working to close the gender cap in technology. This is a free program for teen girls to use computer science to impact their community and join the sisterhood of supportive peers and role models.
Girls Who Code Clubs are designed to teach girls:
Club girls join a safe and supportive environment of peers and role models and learn to see themselves as computer scientists. Beyond the Club, girls can tap into an alumnae network of tens of thousands of girls across the country who are using computer science to solve problems they care about.
Club members learn the concepts of loops, variables, conditionals and functions that form the basis for all programming languages — whether they want to built a website, an app or a robot. Returning Club girls can deepen their programming knowledge through extended activity sets.
Club girls work in teams to design and build a Computer Science “CS” Impact Project that solves real world problems they care about through code.
While this may seem obvious from the name of the club, Girls Who Code clubs are for girls.
The club starts on Tuesday, March 14, 6:30—8:00 PM at the Community Room of the Weston Public Library, 87 School Street. Please see the Library website here.
