More About the Program
htm.elle at Fremont High School will introduce you to technology and computing concepts in a fun, engaging, all-girl environment, igniting the "technology spark" so that you're informed and ready to enter future tech courses with your parents' support.
During htm.elle, you'll explore human behavior and how to positively influence individuals, as well as learn the necessary technical skills to prototype your ideas, such as in data science, software, or physical materials. By the end of the program, you'll have learned major programming languages, primarily Python, HTML, and CSS! We'll also help you build out your pitch deck and begin your journey to starting and funding your own entity.
To supplement your experience, we'll have a few exciting field trips to well-known companies help you get a grasp of what a career in STEM means. We also offer off-site counselors and advisors, as well as a super supportive peer group. Let's get coding!
