Join our Girls Who Code Club!
Beginning Tuesday, June 27 @ 6:30pm
Girls Who Code is open and free to all girls grades 6 and up
Girls Who Code (GWC) is a non-profit organization whose sole aim is to support and increase the number of girls and women in computer science. The challenge, according to the GWC website, is that:
Tech jobs are among the fastest growing in the country, yet girls are being left behind. While interest in computer science ebbs over time, the biggest drop off happens between the ages of 13-17.
At the Rodgers Memorial Library we are committed to increasing girls’ knowledge and opportunities in computer science fields. This summer we will be holding a summer camp that meets every Tuesday evening for six weeks beginning June 27, which wil culminate in a project show-and-tell on August 8.
Summer Camp will be run by software software engineer Lianne Poisson and by the library’s Information Technology (IT) librarian Kate Butler, and overseen by Teen Services Librarian Vicky Sandin. Our classes service public and private school students, along with home-schooled students in southern New Hampshire and northern Massachusetts.
