TPL – Girls Who Code
The Tuscaloosa Public Library is pleased to announce that it will be the site for a Girls Who Code club! We are seeking volunteers with computer science and coding knowledge to teach classes.
The Girls Who Code Clubs Program teaches computer science to 6th-12th grade girls. This unique and scalable model enables girls nationally to access Girls Who Code in their communities. Clubs have launched nationally in over 25 States, helping thousands of girls learn how to code.
The Girls Who Code Clubs Program Experience:
- Skills— Forty hours of instruction in computer science including project based activities to reinforce concepts like conditionals, lists, and loops as well as skills like mobile app development.
- Exposure— Girls Who Code Clubs host speakers, coordinate field trips and engage with the local tech community. Girls Who Code facilitates exclusive connections where possible, providing unique opportunities to Club participants.
- Community— As Clubs participants, girls have access to this supportive and engaged network of teachers, mentors, professionals, and fellow students.
