Girls Who Code (6th-12th grade club)

Girls Who Code Clubs are spaces where girls, non-binary teens, and any other 6-12th graders who support the Girls Who Code mission, can join our community of supportive peers and use Computer Science to change the world. When you join a Club, you will learn by reading excerpts from our books Learn to Code and Change the World and The Friendship Code, practice new skills by completing fun and simple online coding tutorials, and build community through interactive activities with the rest of your Club. Our 6-12th Grade Clubs encourage you to impact your community in a positive way through code. In order to build the skills you need to make an impact, you will learn how to code from our fun online tutorials and activities that will help you build animations, games, apps, and other things that you dream up! We have tutorials in Scratch, Python, Swift, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Technology will be provided.
