In our opinion, Girls Who Code are among the coolest female forces on the planet. Not only are they powerful, but their contributions to the technology industry make them among the most innovative people in the world. Girls who want to develop their coding and technology skills can look no further than the CTL Chromebook.

Clubs are available from Beginner to Advanced, making it a fun learning environment for girls in grades 3-12.


Meetings are typically held in schools, libraries, and community centers during the school year. Summer immersion programs are free and offer stipends that cover transportation and living expenses for seven weeks.
