Partner with a MN Library – Girls Who Code 2019-2020

Let’s get this going in rural areas around Minnesota. Contact your local library as a potential partner!

State Library Services is partnering with Girls Who Code (GWC) this year to bring free computer science learning opportunities to your community.

Girls Who Code Clubs are free after-school programs for girls in grades 3–5 or grades 6–12. Please note, this program targets, but is not limited to, girls.

Participants will join a sisterhood of supportive peers and role models and use computer science to change the world. Participants learn not only hard coding skills and computational thinking, but also project management skills, collaboration, bravery, resilience, how to positively impact their community, and so much more.

Apply now with the brief GWC Clubs Application through our partnership! 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; GWC is there for you every step of the way.
