SciGirls Coding Camp

Campers learn coding using the programmable robots called Ozobots. Campers learn coding using the programmable robots called Ozobots.

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
 

We are in the process of planning our 2021 summer camps. We are taking health and safety guidelines from the CDC and FSU into account as we make our arrangements. At this time, we are planning to offer small, in-person camps in June and July, however, we are prepared to pivot to offer an online camp if needed. Camp applications will be opened in early February. Please visit this webpage again or sign up for our Educator's Club to receive more updates. Thank you for your patience.
