More About the Program

Computers and other equipment will be provided; however, girls who would like to participate independently or have laptops they prefer to use may bring them along. (Girls will work in teams of two for most activities.)

The fee for this program is $40, which includes all materials and the Journey Award. 

G.I.R.L. Coders aims to create a community of girls to explore different fields of STEM! This program will be taught by high school students who have experience with running an AspireIT Program. We are very excited about this program and we hope you are too!
