Encourage your high school girls to code this summer!

By Leah Silverberg

Girls Who Code has opened their applications for their 2018 Summer Immersion Program. Over the course of seven weeks, rising 11th and 12th grade students explore and create coding through art, storytelling, robotics, websites, and apps. Students will also have the opportunity to connect with female engineers and entrepreneurs, go on field trips, and participate in workshops to explore the field of computer science. This FREE immersive experience requires no previous coding experience. Additional stipends are also available to cover living expenses and transportation to support students who qualify.

When are applications due?

Students applying for the Girls Who Code Summer Immersion Program have the option to apply by February 16 for Round One submissions, or March 16 to be considered in Round Two.
