Event description

Description

Do you know a girl who is interested in coding?

The Monterey Girls Who Code chapter teaches girls in grades 6-12 to code in a fun and friendly environment. We will be meeting most Saturdays from 10 AM- 12 PM during the 2017-2018 academic year, except for holidays. The club teaches girls:

SISTERHOOD: Club girls join a safe and supportive environment of peers and role models and learn to see themselves as computer scientists. Beyond the Club, girls can tap into an alumni network of tens of thousands of girls across the country who are using computer science to solve problems they care about.

CODE: Club girls learn the concepts of loops, variables, conditionals, and functions that form the basis for all programming languages –– whether they want to build a website, an app, or a robot. Returning Clubs girls can deepen their programming knowledge through extended activity sets.

IMPACT: Club girls work in teams to design and build a Computer Science “CS” Impact Project that solves real world problems they care about through code.

Each session builds upon the last, so girls are expected to attend every session, however, newcomers are always welcome!

Where can I park?

Parking is available for free right outside the BMC building. Click here for a map of MPC. Parking is available in lot E.

Is it really free?

Yes! Parents don’t need to pay for the sessions or the materials.

What can I do while my daughter is in the session?

We will be hosting workshops during many of the sessions to provide information about potential career fields and college information, such as how to apply and financial information. Research shows that parents are a large factor in girls decisions around their careers and the workshops are geared towards providing the information parents need to help guide their daughter's decisions.

Do I need to bring my ticket to the event?

Nope! We just ask that you register so that we get an idea of how many people are coming.
