The Concord Free Public Library hosts a Girls Who Code Club for girls in grades 6 -12 during the academic year. The Club meets weekly on Wednesdays from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. normally at the Main Library (129 Main Street) but this year the Club will meet online due to the COVID-19 safety concerns. -- (updated on 10/6/2020)
Over the course of the year, participants learn a range of coding skills while also working together on a group project that offers a solution to a group-identified real world need. This year, 2020-2021, that project will involve creating a website. With support from facilitators Teresa Hubscher-Younger and Sophia Hubscher, teen facilitator Hannah Tandang introduced new and returning members to html, which they then explored by creating holiday cards.
See an example from one student here: https://bit.ly/2K3fSCS! Just hit the "Run" button to see her html code transformed into an exciting holiday greeting card!
Started in 2012 with the single mission to close the gender gap in technology, Girls Who Code is a national program designed to inspire, educate and prepare girls with computing and problem-solving skills to pursue 21st-century opportunities.
Girls with a curiosity about emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, website apps and game development will learn more about these interests and more in a fun and relaxed environment.
