Girls Who Code at Howard Community College offers computer science activities and instruction to girls (and those who identify as girls) in grades 6-12. Participants will learn various computer languages and learn to apply computational thinking strategies as they build a website, app or game. Participants will also 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 girls in grades 6-12 with little or 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, 2:00-3:30pm, starting Feb 25th 


Advanced Level MakerSpace – For girls in grades 9-12 with prior coding experience. This informal, student-led space offers a free independent learning environment with instructors and mentors on hand to provide help, but no formal lectures or assignments. Bring your own projects! Sundays, 3:30-5:00pm, starting Feb 25th.


Registration for the Spring 2018 semester opens Sunday, February 11th  

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
