The Girls Who Code Project is what drives our program experiences!
In a majority of our programs, Clubs will choose a theme that is important to them, this could be inspired by a real-world issue. Then, over the course of the program participants will build their computer science skills while planning and creating a project that relates to that issue.
Students choose one of our GWC Project Tutorials that best interest them and follow the steps to create their projects. After students have followed their tutorials and created a project that meets the basic requirements they will get the chance to customize their projects through extension challenges.
The program ends with a GWC Project Launch Party, where each team shows off what they have built, why it matters, and how they have grown.
You can find examples of past GWC Projects in the Project Gallery.
Please note: At this time, 3rd-5th grade Clubs do not have to build a GWC Project - but it is a great idea for Facilitators to show the Project Gallery to students anyway, to inspire them to stick with Computer Science in middle school.
