Registration has opened up for Stratton Library’s Girls Who Code program. The coding program starts virtually on Saturday, August 15 and meets every Saturday from 1 pm – 3 pm through December 12.
The computer science club is geared towards closing the gender gap in technology. Girls Who Code is a non-profit organization dedicated to building a future for female engineers. It is open for grades 6 – 12.
The program seeks to increase women in technology and computer science fields. It is free, but space is limited. Be sure to reserve your slot by calling 770-528-2522 or clicking here to fill out the registration form online.
“In 1995, 37% of computer scientists were women. Today, it’s only 24%. The percent will continue to decline if we do nothing.” -GirlsWhoCode.com
