2017 was the inaugural year for the SciGirls Coding Camp, a spin-off from SciGirls Summer Camp. The camp is open to rising 6th-grade through rising 9th-grade students. Computer science is the science of choice for campers in SciGirls Coding Camp. Campers can expect an exposure to computer sciences, meeting with guest scientists and engineers who are currently working in the field, and a chance to interact with girls who have a similar interest. This is one week when we want our campers' eyes on the screen.

During their week, campers can expect:

  • An introduction to computer coding languages
  • Guest professionals who are currently working in the field
  • Extensive group work
  • Interactions with girls with similar interests
 

Due to the current situation with COVID-19, applications for this summer’s programs have been extended to April 22.
