Description

Girls are IT! is a two part program for middle school girls in Detroit consisting of a one day program and a 4 week camp where the girls will have an opportunity to learn about the world of computing through industry leaders, university students, and participation in hands on activities. Our 4 week camp immerses middle school girls in introductory programming through Scratch, where they will begin to tackle social issues that affect their lives and their communities on a day to day basis and learn how technology can be used as a tool to solve these problems.
