Girls Who Code is an International non-profit organization working to close the gender gap in the technology field. In this program, led by St. Luke's designLab faculty member Kimberly Gerardi, we will learn how to code through creative projects such as app invention, quizzes and puzzles. Each lesson has a workflow that allows students to zero in on aspects of the projects that are meaningful to them. Students can collaborate or work independently on coding projects. Lessons range from one-hour projects to sophisticated applications, so there really is something for everyone regardless of 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. Grades 5-8 are welcome. We can accommodate multiple skill levels in one camp, and are pleased to offer this experience at no cost during summer 2021.
