Girls Who Code, Grades 5-8
Wednesday, December 135:00—6:00 PMThe WorkshopMain Library129 Main Street, Concord, MA, 01742
Over the course of the academic year (Oct-May), Concord Girls Who Code members learn a variety of coding skills and work together to design, create, and produce a project that addresses a real world problem. Our adult and teen facilitators have a range of coding and project development skills. They teach and mentor participants, encouraging them to develop their abilities and confidence.
We do expect a commitment to weekly attendance. This year, we will meet in person in the workshop. Members are encouraged to bring their own computers if they can; otherwise, they can use a library laptop. We do not meet during school vacation weeks.
What is Girls Who Code?
Girls Who Code was started in 2012 with the single mission to close the gender gap in technology. It is a national program designed to inspire, educate, and prepare girls with computing and problem-solving skills to pursue 21st-century opportunities. Girls with a curiosity about emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, apps, and game development will learn about these interests and more in a fun and relaxed environment. Learn more about the Concord chapter of Girls Who Code directly from the girls with a website they created using HTML and hosted on Github. Visit: https://hubsct.github.io/
