Girls Who Code at Howard Community College offers computer science activities and instruction to girls in grades 6-12.  This out-of-school program aims to close the gender gap in tech by teaching girls teamwork, time management, communication skills, and confidence through computer science. Participants will build their circle of sisterhood and discover ways to use computer science to solve problems in their classrooms and communities.

Girls Who Code Club Offerings:

Introduction to Coding For all girls in grades 6–8 and girls in grades 9–12 with no coding experience. Instructors and mentors provide hands-on assistance working with participants to guide them through activities and challenges that will grow their computational thinking skills. Sundays, 2:30–4 pm, starting Oct. 7.  Registration is full for the fall 2018 semester.

Advanced Level Maker Space – Our new GWC Maker Space Club provides an independent environment where girls can explore their passion for computer programming and technology. Girls will work as a development team to design and code an application, pursue self-directed learning, and be exposed to a diverse range of technical topics, including mobile app design, hardware engineering, UX design, databases, cybersecurity, and more. Girls Who Code Maker Space is open to girls in grades 9–12 with previous coding experience who want to explore their passion for computer programming and technology. Sundays, 4–5:30 pm, starting Oct. 7. Registration is full for the fall 2018 semester.

Cost – All instruction, materials, and curriculum are provided generously by Girls Who Code. HCC kindly provides classroom space and use of computers for our clubs and workshops.

Donations – Please consider making a donation to our club. Your contribution will help cover the cost of your child’s t-shirt, snacks, and recognition for our instructors who volunteer their time to support the kids each Sunday –  Donate here

  1. My high school daughter is very interested in join in your club. She has been developing apps for two years independently. She is very interested in joining the group who also like to code.


  2. Hello,

    I have 2 daughters that I would like to get enrolled in the Girls Who Code program or a program similar to that until an opening is available. My daughters are in the 5th and 6th grade and we live in Accokeek M.D. but are willing to travel. My number is 301-529-0184.

    Thank you
