Such a valuable program for girls! Girls Who Code is currently enrolling for BOTH of their summer programs.

Where: Virtual in 2022

Cost: FREE

Description: Choose from a 2-week immersion program or a 6-week self-paced experience that will allow you to meet other students and learn in the style that works best for you!

The Summer Immersion Program (SIP) is a live, virtual, 2-week introductory computer science course for currently eligible 9th, 10th, and 11th grade US students and international students ages 14-18. Through our new curriculum focused on Game Design, SIP participants will learn beginner to intermediate computer science concepts, UX design basics, and more – all while getting an inside look into the tech industry through incredible company partners. In addition to a completely free program, we offer grants up to $300 and tech support for qualifying students.

Students will also have the opportunity to build community through live advisory events and other Girls Who Code engagements.
