Encourage your high school girls to code this summer!

By Leah Silverberg

Girls Who Code has opened applications for their 2017 Summer Immersion Program. This 7-week program for 10th- and 11th-grade girls is FREE and requires no previous coding experience!

Program participants will use coding to explore and create art, storytelling, robotics, video games, websites, and apps. Participants will also visit tech companies and gain an understanding of STEM careers by meeting female engineers and entrepreneurs. If you have female students who are interested in coding or STEM, encourage them to apply! Applications are due March 17th, and additional stipends are available to cover living expenses and transportation to support students who qualify.

Girls Who Code will be hosting 18 Summer Immersion Programs in the following cities:

  • Atlanta, Ga.
  • Austin, Texas
  • Boston, Mass.
  • Chicago, Ill.
  • Los Angeles, Calif.
  • Miami, Fla.
  • Newark, N.J.
  • New York City, N.Y.
  • San Francisco Bay Area, Calif.
  • Seattle, Wash.
