Robbins Library is launching a Girls Who Code club this fall and will be hosting a Girls Who Code Open House and lottery on Wednesday, September 28 from 7-8:30 p.m. in the Robbins Library Community Room. The program will run on Wednesdays, except for vacation weeks, from October 19 through June 14 from 3:30-5:30 p.m in the Community Room.
Girls Who Code is a national non-profit organization dedicated to closing the gender gap in technology. Area girls in grades 6-12 and their guardians are invited to attend this open house to learn more about the club and to be entered into a lottery to receive one of the 24 available spaces. Attendance at the open house is mandatory for lottery participation. The first part of the evening will go over club specifics and introduce the volunteer instructors. The second part of the evening will be a lottery for the 24 available spaces in the club.
Girls Who Code is a group for girls who want to learn coding skills, meet others with similar interests, and discover how these skills can lead to a job in the tech industry. The program is run by three instructors who will help answer questions students may have and help guide them through the curriculum, which is provided free of charge by the organization Girls Who Code. Students will work at their own pace on a project, and prior experience is not required.
