Girls Who Code summer immersion program

Girls Who Code is now accepting applications to its 7-week summer immersion program in Atlanta for girls who are currently in 10th or 11th grade (rising juniors and seniors as of summer 2018).

The summer immersion program is a day camp that meets from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays. Students will learn coding skills, meet engineers, and work on a project to address a real-world problem that interests them. This is a beginner-level coding program; no prior computer programming experience is needed.

The camp is free, and financial aid may be available for girls who need help paying for transportation to the camp location, or who ordinarily rely on a summer job to make ends meet. Girls Who Code encourages everyone to apply for this assistance stipend.

From their web site, it looks like Atlanta will host two sections of this program, one from June 4 to July 20, and the other from June 11 to July 27.

The early decision application deadline is February 16. The final deadline is March 16.

[Shout out to my sister-in-law who reminded me about this program and who said, based on her experience, it’s as much about teamwork and leadership as it is about computing.]
