Girls Who Code is a nonprofit organization that strives to close the gender gap in technology.
They aim to support and increase the number of women in STEMM through instruction of free courses in computer science.
Case Western Reserve University's chapter of Girls Who Code will be hosting a 10-week computer science course for high school students on campus starting on Feb. 9!
The sessions will be on Saturdays at a tentative time (determined in the interest form link found below).
Prior experience with programming is not required. Personal equipment, such as computers, will be provided for the students taking this course. Also, a parent/guardian must complete a consent form BEFORE attending the sessions. This will be provided at a later time.
Additionally, students who complete all 10 sessions will receive a certificate recognizing that they are official Girls Who Code alumni. Students will also be accepted into the Girls Who Code's official alumni network which will allow them access to mentors and resources. Additionally, 57 top companies have pledged to hire Girls Who Code alumni. You can learn more about the organizationhere: https://girlswhocode.com/clubs/.

a 10 week fully funded coding program in New York City!**
