Girls Who Code (GWC) is a national non-profit working to close the gender gap in technology. The Clubs are free programs for 6-12th grade girls to use computer science to impact their community and join a sisterhood of supportive peers and role models.
The College of Computer and Information Science at Northeastern University is proud to be running a Girls Who Code club starting this September. It will be taught by Undergraduate women studying computer science and it will be held in a Northeastern University computer lab.
The GWC program teaches coding skills along with project planning and management. The curriculum introduces different areas of computer science through self guided modules ranging from simple drag and drop programming languages to database design and functional programming. Additionally, GWC clubs spend 5-10 minutes each week highlighting different women technologists and the amazing work they do!
Northeastern Girls Who Code is open to any girl between grades 6 and 12. Whether you’ve been programming for years or you don’t know how coding works, Girls Who Code is for you.
