Girls Can Code

What is Girls Can Code?

A woman-led outreach program at UAB with the goal of exposing girls in high school and middle school to the field of computer science. This spring we’ll be teaching girls to code in Python by completing fun projects and exploring collaborative programming techniques. The material will be accessible to beginners, and currently the program is open only to girls in grades 7 through 12. We hope to expand the program in the future.

Why should girls learn to code?

Many girls are interested in math and science, but most high schools don’t offer courses in computer science. We’re inviting girls to come give programming a chance in a welcoming, female-only environment


Every Saturday afternoon from 1 to 2:30 beginning January 30th and ending March 19th for a total of 8 sessions.
