In response to COVID-19, Girls Who Code has changed its Summer Immersion Program to be a free two-week virtual program. It’s for girls and non-binary students currently in Grades 9-11 to learn computer science and get exposure to technology jobs. No previous experience is required — just an interest in technology and willingness to learn. For more information, register for a live webinar on May 20, 6PM-6:30PM, or view the pre-recorded webinar here. Space is limited for the Summer Immersion Program, and applications are considered on a rolling basis, so act quickly. The application takes about 20-30 minutes and does not require grades or recommendations. Students may also apply for a $300 need-based stipend.
Girls Who Code also offers free Code-At-Home activities each week, some online and some offline, at varying levels of difficulty. New activities are released each Wednesday at 1PM, and each activity features a woman who pioneered innovative technology. The activities are also on GWC’s Instagram.
Girls Who Code also invites you to register for a free, four-part virtual event series for GWC alumni and community to discuss uncertainties around college, internships, and careers during the pandemic.
