3rd-5th grade Girls Who Code Clubs provide a space for girls to feel inspired as they build confidence in their creativity and Computer Science skills, while simultaneously building camaraderie and a sense of community.
We know that jobs in the technology industry are among the fastest growing in the country with the potential to provide our young people with significant financial freedom. Yet girls are being left behind. While 66% of girls aged 6-12 report interest in Computer Science, that percentage drops to 32% between the ages of 13-17.
3rd-5th grade Clubs are an effort to change that. Our curriculum for our youngest learners is designed to get and keep girls excited about Computer Science before they continue their learning into middle school, high school, and beyond. We want girls to have every opportunity to participate in the tech sector, and to know that they have the support they need to pursue their goals.
