The Wakefield Library in cooperation with the WAY is starting up the local chapter of Girls Who Code on March 16, 2020 with a 10 week pilot program. We were lucky to recruit a very experienced facilitator. She brings an extensive coding knowledge and a technology teaching career to this project. This will be an all female environment and we are looking for girls between 11 and 14 years old. Club membership and meetings are free. The WAY and the Wakefield Library are paying the cost related to this.
Girls Who Code is an international organization with the goal to close the gender gap in technology. The non-profit organization has reached 185,000 girls across Canada and the USA inspiring, educating, teaching computing skills and increasing female participation in STEM degrees and job sector. They have also national chapters in the UK and India.
If you are interested, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name, address, phone number and age. It would also be very helpful to give us an idea about your interest and if you have coding experience.
