Are you looking to learn to code? Do you want to build something amazing? Woodridge Library has just the thing - we're starting our very own Girls Who Code club!

Girls Who Code is an organization founded by Reshma Saurani with the mission of closing the gender gap in technology. Since 2012 they have worked with schools, libraries and other public institutions to bring coding to girls in all 50 states and several US territories. Despite the name, this club isn't only for girls! This club is open to anyone in the third, fourth or fifth grade who wants to learn to code. Join us on the first and third Wednesdays of the month starting in March from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m.

This club will use both offline and online elements to teach coding principles, so club members will want access to an email address (parents' emails are fine!). If you would like your child to participate in the online elements, please pick up a permission slip from the Children's reference desk and turn it in at the first meeting you attend. Please reach out to Ms. Allie at Woodridge if you have any questions (202-541-6226). We can't wait to see you!
