Check Out Girls Who Code’s Virtual Summer Program

Educators, do you have high school students interested in computer science? Consider sharing this summer program with them—hosted by Girls Who Code. Girls Who Code is an international nonprofit working to close the gender gap in technology and previously contributed an article to the Summer 2020 issue of ATPE News magazine. 

Here’s what you need to know about the program and how your students can apply: 

Apply to Girls Who Code’s free two-week Virtual Summer Immersion Program for an unforgettable experience! Current ninth to 11th grade girls and non-binary students are eligible to apply.  

The early application deadline is approaching quickly on February 17! Girls Who Code strongly encourage students from underrepresented groups in tech to apply early, including Black, Latinx, and students from low-income backgrounds. 

Why should you join Girls Who Code this summer?

  • Join a sisterhood of supportive peers and make lifelong friendships!
  • Meet women in tech from top corporations like Disney, AT&T, Twitter, and more. 
  • You can join for free! Plus, Girls Who Code will provide need-based tech support for those who qualify.
