Girls Who Code, and Closing the Gender Gap

Here at the Rodgers Memorial Library, we’re proud to offer a regular Girls Who Code club. The mission of GWC is to encourage more girls to seek careers in computer science by introducing them to coding, starting in middle school and high school.

Back in August, Reshma Saujani—the founder of Girls Who Code—gave an interview to School Library Journal. Check out the link below if you’re interested in hearing what she has to say about empowering young women and closing the gender gap in the tech industry. And if you’re interested in joining Girls Who Code once it gets started again, follow this blog for more information about that and other upcoming teen programs at RML.

Girls Who Code – Week 5

Hi everyone – due to an email crash I was not able to access my mail, which had Lianne’s link to the slide she featured on July 25. But my email is back, yay! and I’m able to share Lianne’s slide, see below.

Keep working on your projects! If you’ve finished your project, then feel free to continue with the Codesters more advanced lessons to learn more about Python.

A reminder: Our Parent/Friends night is scheduled for Wednesday, August 9, at 6:30pm. The girls will show off their projects, and we’ll all belly up to the (sundae!) bar and celebrate the girls’ hard work with ice cream and all the toppings!
