Girls Who Code Summer Immersion Program Application Extended to Monday, March 25th!

Join Girls Who Code’s FREE 7-week Summer Immersion Program for 10th–11th grade students (rising juniors or seniors) to learn the computer science skills they need to make an impact in their community while preparing for a career in tech. When you join Girls Who Code for their Summer Immersion Program, you’ll learn about:

· CAREERS — You’ll spend your summer at the world’s top companies, like Amazon, Twitter, Bank of America, AT&T, and more. At their offices, you’ll have access to a more engaging experience in the tech field by hearing from guest speakers, participating in workshops, connecting with inspiring female engineers and entrepreneurs, and going on fun and interactive field trips.

· SKILLS AND IMPACT — Over the course of 7 weeks, girls learn computer science through hands-on real-world projects in fields including art, storytelling, robotics, game development, and web development! The program culminates in a final project such as an app or website, where girls work together to solve a problem that is important to them, connecting the skills they’ve learned with the ability to solve real-world problems and create change in their communities.

· SISTERHOOD — As an essential member of our Girls Who Code sisterhood, you’ll learn in a supportive, all-female environment andmake lifelong friendships that encourage you to be brave, take risks, and stand up for what matters to you!

No prior experience in computer science is necessary to apply. In addition to providing a free program, Girls Who Code provides students with free lunch every day. Summer stipends to cover transportation and living costs between $300 and $1400 are also available for students who qualify.

Students can apply here.
