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!
