General Information

Girls Who Code is a program offered by the Hale County Literacy Council, in partnership with the Computer Science program at Wayland Baptist University, for girls who are  interested in learning computer science and coding. There are two age groups, 3rd-5th grade and 6th-12th grade. Currently we are developing the 6th-12th grade age groups and will add the 3rd-5th grade groups later.

It is free to participants and no prior knowledge of computer science is necessary.

Participants will learn:

  • To see themselves as computer scientists in a supportive environment of peers and role models,

  • Foundational computer science concepts that form the basis of all programming languages,

  • Project management and problem-solving techniques,

  • A variety of programming languages, including block-based code (Scratch), Python and JavaScript,

  • To work with a team to build a Girls Who Code project that addresses a real-world local problem that requires a technology solution.
