Girls Who Code Clubs

Kansas Department of Education has partnered with Girls Who Code (GWC) once again this year to bring free computer science learning opportunities to our state. Girls Who Code Clubs are FREE after-school programs for 3rd-12th grade girls to join a sisterhood of supportive peers and role models and use computer science to change the world. Participants not only learn hard coding skills and computational thinking, but they???ll also learn project management skills, collaboration, bravery, resilience, how to positively impact their community, and so much more.

When you start a GWC Club, you???ll gain access to free resources, flexible plug and play curriculum, funding opportunities, ongoing support, alumni opportunities for your young learners, and more! There???s no computer science experience needed to get started since GWC is there for you every step of the way.
