The Girls Who Code Club at Binghamton University is offering a 10-week program for high school level girls to learn computer science and programming languages. Tech jobs are among the fastest growing in the country, yet girls are being left behind. The club strives to give young girls interested in STEM the support needed to shape them into future CEOs and strong women in the workforce.
In a matter of weeks, these young women who have little to no experience in coding will learn various programming languages, build web applications and projects that impact their communities for better, and join a sisterhood of supportive peers.
The 10-week program is completely free and offered in Beginner Python for Middle and High Schoolers, Beginner Web Development for Middle and High Schoolers, and Intro to Robotics for Returning Middle and High Schoolers. Students will not only learn coding, but learn about other women in STEM, as well as have college mentors.
The program will be held every Saturday from 10am-12pm in-person at the Binghamton University campus. Students must coordinate their own transportation to/from the university. There will be a pick-up/drop-off location in the supervision of university officials as well as club staff to ensure the safety of the student.
The Girls Who Code Club believes that by creating this educational program to help nurture these young women, they will be able to succeed in anything they set their minds to. Apply via www.gwcatbinghamton.com
