Girls Who Code

"Girls Who Code" is an after school program for girls ages 11-16 in Lowell Public Schools. Participating girls will develop skills that will serve them well into high school, college and ultimately into the work force.

Participating girls will develop skills that will serve them well into high school, college and ultimately into the work force.  Girls will gain real-world project management and problem solving techniques, learn a variety of programming languages (Scratch, Python, Javascript, etc.) and the foundational computer science of loops, variables, conditionals and functions that form the basis for all programming languages—whether they want to build a website, an app, or a robot. Girls will be able to interact with mentors, see themselves as computer scientists, and work on a team to design and build a Computer Science (CS) Impact Project that solves real world problems they care about.
