    Our FREE 7-week Summer Immersion Program teaches 10th–11th grade students (rising juniors or seniors) the computer science skills they need to make an impact in their community while preparing for a career in tech. In the Summer Immersion Program, girls will learn about:


    • CAREERS — They’ll meet inspiring female role models in the field and get an inside look at the tech world through guest speakers, workshops, fun field trips and more! Their summer will be spent in classrooms hosted at the world’s top companies, like Twitter, Amazon, AT&T, Warner Brothers, and Microsoft.
    • SKILLS AND IMPACT — They’ll learn to code through hands on real-world projects in art and storytelling, robotics, video games, websites, apps, and more. By the end of the summer, they’ll also create a final project that solves a real-world problem they care about -- combining their new coding skills with their passions to change the world!
    • SISTERHOOD — As essential members of our Girls Who Code sisterhood, they’ll learn in a supportive, all-female environment and make lifelong friendships that encourage them to be brave, take risks, and stand up for what matters to them! 


    No prior experience in computer science is necessary to apply. In addition to providing a free program, Girls Who Code provides students with free lunch every day. Summer stipends to cover transportation and living costs between $350 and $1,200 are also available for students who qualify. I'd love to speak with you more about our program.

    The early deadline is February 14th and the application closes on March 13th.


    We hope to see students in your network join the sisterhood this summer!


    Thank you,
