About this webinar:

Coding and computer science are hot topics in the education world—as necessary skills for the 21st century, as opportunities to access a growing job market, and as relevant hooks to engage today’s youth. Curious to know how afterschool programs can get involved? Join this webinar to hear from Girls Who Code, an organization that has been working to close the gender gap in the technology through their immersive summer program for high school girls and a rapidly-expanding afterschool initiative for 6th-12 graders. They will present their strategies for effective computing education, and share how you can get started by hosting a Girls Who Code Club.
