JOIN THE RBHS GIRLS WHO CODE CLUB
This club will allow girls to explore new technology and computer science in a welcoming and relaxed environment. Girls of all levels are welcome. ANYONE at ANYTIME may show up! No experience necessary!
The club meets on Tuesday mornings at 7:15 am in Room 252 (the lab by the library). Sometimes there's even snacks!!!
We welcome anyone who is willing and interested in learning about coding, programming, app inventing, robotics, and hearing guest speakers.
Girls Who Code programs work to inspire, educate, and equip girls with the computing skills to pursue 21st century opportunities.
PATH TO SUCCESS: The U.S. Department of Labor projects that by 2020, there will be 1.4 million computer specialist job openings. To reach gender parity by 2020, women must fill half of these positions, or 700,000 computing jobs. Anecdotal data tells us that an average of 30% of those students with exposure to computer science will continue in the field. This means that 4.6M adolescent girls will require some form of exposure to computer science education to realize gender parity in 2020. Girls Who Code is a national movement to address the need for women in computer science.
