Girls Programming

Computer programming in a fun environment exclusively for girls.


This course introduces coding fundamentals. The course is designed for girls to emphasize that coding can be a fun and creative endeavor, especially for girls who have no programming experience. Women instructors use programming exercises and directed experimentation to teach concepts in a fun and practical way. Our teaching methodology uses the APCS graphics library, an open-source teaching tool developed here at Techlab to make our girl's first experience with programming a creative and intuitive experience.

  • programming fundamentals (Java or Python)
  • handling variables, data-types, iterations
  • hands-on coding w/ interactive experimentation

No prior coding experience needed.
