The Summer Immersion Program is a free introductory computer science program for girls going into their junior or senior year of high school.
During the seven week program, from 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM, Monday through Friday, participants learn about computer science, gain exposure to tech jobs, and join a national sisterhood of girls who are using computer science to become change-makers.
Summer Immersion Program (SIP) classrooms are hosted at major tech companies across the United States, so girls get a firsthand look at what it's like to work in computing and are able to envision their own futures in this field.
The lessons culminate in a final project, where girls work together to solve a problem that is important to them, connecting the skills they have learned with the ability to solve real-world problems and create change in their communities.
After graduating from the program, students enter the Girls Who Code alumni network, where they can connect with tens of thousands of girls across the United States who are using technology to make a difference.
