Free after-school clubs for teen girls.

Join our weekly club at the Cambridge Public Library and learn how to build an app, design a video game, and change the world through code!

Girls Who Code is a national non-profit organization leading the movement to inspire, educate, and equip girls with the computing skills to pursue 21st century opportunities. 

To get a more precise idea as to what participants will build, have a look at completed projects from previous years.

Who is it for?

This program is open to anyone who identifies as a girl! However it is a teen program, for participants aged 13-18 (roughly grades 8-12). 

When is it?

This program is scheduled to run every Wednesday, 4:00 to 6:00PM from October 11 2017 until December 20 2017 (EXCEPT  November 22 because of Thanksgiving break).

That's ten, two-hour sessions.

Where is it?

In the Beech Room (big glass room right by the entrance) in the main branch of the Cambridge Public Library.

Will I need to bring a computer!

No! The library will provide computers (nice new chromebooks).

Is it free?
