Supporting Girls Who Code in a Rural School District

My students need access to basic Chromebooks to access coding opportunities online.

My Students

Our school system is in a rural area in Georgia, and despite having some of the highest test scores in the state, we also have the 2nd lowest student expenditure. Our resources can often be limited, but it is impressive what our hardworking students can achieve despite not always having access to the same resources as larger districts. This year, we started a Girls Who Code Club for almost 20 girls who we hope to encourage to pursue careers in technology.

Our Girls Who Code members are an enthusiastic group of girls who are excited to use coding for outreach to other students.

Their computer science impact project is to develop an advice game for upcoming middle schoolers to understand "How to Survive Middle School." The girls have never been exposed to coding, and they have jumped right into the Girls Who Code curriculum and have already begun creating their projects.

My Project

Our current library laptops are six years old and have problems with crashing/speed. Having access to five Chromebooks will allow our girls to access the Girls Who Code website and the MIT coding tutorials for their project.

The girls are almost half-way through their coding tutorials, but they now need expanded access to their coding platforms to build their group games.

It's exciting to watch the girls learn coding, but it's even more impressive to watch them use their new skills to support their community with real-life outreach to younger students. The girls are receiving life-changing experiences that women are fully capable of pursuing technology careers.
