Girls Who Code is a free program hosted by WICC consisting of weekly middle school and high school workshops for local students. We pair learning the fundamentals of Computer Science with exploring fun projects through software and hardware such as Scratch, Arduinos, and Ozobots. Our curriculum is based off that of Girls Who Code, and we are lucky enough to partner with Accenture to receive funding for all the cool things we do in Girls Who Code! Our classes boast anywhere between 10 and 20 students per semester. Both the middle school and high school classes have two co-leaders in charge, and we work with a set of dedicated college student volunteers to ensure that every Girls Who Code student gets the attention that they need to succeed. Our goal is to instill an appreciation for CS in every student, to develop their confidence, and to empower them to pursue their interests. We aim to show students that CS is about creativity and can be used to solve real-world problems.
