Girls Who Code at Northeastern University is a free weekly club that empowers girls grades 6-12 to use computer science to impact their community and join our sisterhood of supportive peers and role models.
Girls Who Code Clubs focus on developing sisterhood, writing code, and creating community impact.
Students join a safe and supportive environment of peers and role models and learn to see themselves as computer scientists. Beyond the Club, girls can tap into an alumni network of tens of thousands of girls across the country who are using computer science to solve problems they care about.
Students learn the concepts of loops, variables, conditionals, and functions that form the basis for all programming languages –– whether they want to build a website, an app, or a robot. Returning Clubs girls can deepen their programming knowledge through extended activity sets.
Girls work in teams to design and build a Computer Science “CS” Impact Project that solves real world problems they care about through code. The girls will learn agile development as they design, build, and test this project.
The Girls Who Code Club at Northeastern is run by Northeastern students with the support of the College of Computer and Information Science.
