Girls Who Code is a national organization that was founded with the singular mission of closing the gap in technology. Girls Who Code introduces girls to the concept of coding and the idea of using computer science to have an impact their community through its computer science projects.

We are pleased to launch a Girls Who Code of Macon County for our girls who are looking to develop a sisterhood forged through computer science with a goal to impact our community. It is free for girls to participate in Girls Who Code and incorporates skills from the beginning level programmer to the advanced programmer.

Girls may be from any public, private, parochial or home-school in Macon County. Girls who participate in Girls Who Code are typically enrolled in grades 6th through 12th. Girls Who Code of Macon County will also accept girls who are 10 years of age and older who demonstrate maturity and ability to actively participate in a 10-week coding session.

Girls Who Code of Macon County will offer three sessions with 12 spaces available in each session. Thus, our goal for the initial cohort of Girls Who Code of Macon County is 36 participants on a first-come first-serve basis.
