My Students

Our high school is a wonderfully diverse and inclusive community. We believe every student can achieve excellence through unique learning experiences. The goal of our Girls Who Code school club is to close the gender gap in technology.

Our Girls Who Code club is open to all female students (and those who identify as female) in grades 9 through 12.

Our club meets during school and after school. We are hoping to grow our group each year! New members are always welcome!

My Project

Girls learning to code is just one step towards addressing the gender gap in STEM fields. Girls who learn to code early develop problem-solving, logic and critical thinking skills while understanding the deep impacts of computer science.

The girls need raw material supplies like wood, metals and 3D printing filament to make their creations come to life!

Together our club members will collaborate to creatively develop solutions to problems. These materials will allow opportunities to not only implement engineering design principles but to inspire creativity. Failure is an important part of learning and through construction and coding errors girls will learn how to persevere through frustration and setbacks.
