Do you want to learn how to code? Build a whole new world using your fingertips?

<p>This is the club for you!</p>

Founded in 2012 by Reshma Saujani, Girls Who Code is an international nonprofit that seeks to inspire, educate and equip girls with the computing skills to pursue 21st century opportunities. The organization’s mission is to close the gender gap in technology and has served over 185,000 students across North America and several US territories in the process.

Despite the name, this club isn't only for girls. This ten-week summer series is open to anyone in the sixth to twelfth grade who wants to learn how to code. Join us on Thursdays starting in June from 4 - 5 p.m.   

Space is limited to ten members. To register, or ask questions, please e-mail julie.seigel@dc.gov. Each club member receives a free Girls Who Code book with their registration.
