WHAT IS GIRLS WHO CODE?
Girls Who Code is a club that’s part of a community of girls who actively design, code, read, and explore together. Featuring activities, characters, and vocabulary drawn from the best-selling Girls Who Code books, this club seeks to expose girls to bravery, resilience, and computational thinking at the exact moment when research indicates their interest is high.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A CLUB MEETING?
Each meeting will include fun, interactive activities that are unique to Girls Who Code. A typical meeting starts with girls reading together from part of the book. Then, they discuss questions that relate to both the book and important concepts, like bravery and sisterhood. The club will then take on a creative challenge – either unplugged or online – that relates to the chapter they read.
