What do Buzzfeed quizzes, online puzzles, and video games all have in common?
Girls Who Code, an international non-profit organization, provides fantastic resources that we will use to create fun and interactive projects.
Led by St. Luke’s designLab faculty member Kimberly Gerardi and in partnership with Camp LiveGirl, our GWC sessions allow students to collaborate or work independently on coding projects. Lessons range from one-hour projects to sophisticated applications (advanced coders can choose their preferred coding language), so there is something for everyone to learn and explore regardless of prior experience.
Beyond our camp experience, Girls Who Code offers students the opportunity to stay connected with the network of girls and women as they grow in STEM and computer science.
Students can bring their own computer if they have one (iPads are not compatible with the program software). If you need to borrow a computer for use on campus, please reach out to Kimberly Gerardi ahead of time. We are pleased to again offer this experience at no cost during summer 2023.
