GIRLS WHO CODE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
Girls Who Code Clubs teach more than code. Our curriculum for 3-5th grade and 6-12th grade girls focus on the following three components:
Clubs provide girls with a safe and supportive learning environment. With the support of their peers and role models, girls learn to see themselves as computer scientists. Beyond their Club experience, girls become a part of our growing alumni network.
Club girls learn the essential 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.
BRAVERY & IMPACT
Through fun and interactive curricula, Club girls not only learn about how to positively impact their community through code, but they also are taught to be brave and resilient to help them persist in the field.
