This program will allow 6th-12th grade girls on Staten Island to have increased opportunities to learn coding. Another benefit to the program is that the girls who participate will be mentored by female engineers who can show them what it's like to work in this field. The program will also run field trips to the world's leading tech companies, so girls can see coding in action.
Middle and high schools are eligible to become host sites for the program. To host a club, a sponsor would need computers with an internet connection for each Club member, space to host the Club and a faculty member to lead the club and coordinate with Girls Who Code.
