Free computer science summer program for 10th and 11th grade girls

Girls Who CodeThere are only four days left to submit applications for the Girls Who Code seven-week summer immersion program, which will be offered at three locations around metro Atlanta during summer 2016.

Current 10th and 11th grade girls will receive instruction in coding and meet members of the business community, learning about the role computer science plays in a variety of industries. The program is designed for beginners — no coding experience is necessary.

The program will be held on weekdays, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., from June 6 to July 22. Locations are:

  • Accenture, 100 Peachtree Street NW, Atlanta, 30303
  • AT&T, 725 West Peachtree Street NE, Atlanta, 30308
  • GE, 2018 Powers Ferry Rd. SE, Atlanta, 30339

The summer immersion program is free to all participants. Students who have to pay for transportation to the program location may be eligible for a stipend to cover those costs. And for girls who qualify, cash scholarships of $400 to $1,400 may be available. This money is intended to offset the loss of wages for girls who would ordinarily need to work a summer job.

Girls Who Code is a national non-profit organization dedicated to closing the gender gap in technology.

Applications are due March 8.
