We are hosting three clubs that are a part of the national organization Girls Who Code. Girls Who Code is committed to debugging the gender gap by providing opportunities to expose middle and high school girls to computer science at an earlier age. For more information on the Girls Who Code program please look here!
Here at UNC Chapel Hill, the undergraduate and graduate students within the Computer Science department work each week to provide guidance in Python and web development to local middle and high school girls. We have three meetings each week: Monday 5-6:30pm, Tuesday 5-6:30pm and Wednesday 5-6:30pm in Sitterson Hall. For Spring 2019, the sessions are for students continuing from fall 2018 and students with coding experience. The girls spend part of their time working through an online Python curriculum as established by Girls Who Code and part of their time completing a Community Project that is web-based and showcased at the end of the year.
We are currently one of the only public Girls Who Code clubs for a 25 mile radius, meaning that anyone can join regardless of what school they attend! Currently we have over 40 participants coming from 14 different schools! Sign up here to join one of our clubs today.
