Girls Who Code at The Leonardo
What is coding? How do robots work? How are apps made? This program introduces students to the fundamentals of computer science and raises awareness of the related careers. Some lesson plans may include special guests from our local tech industry.
The Girls Who Code program encourages students to practice leadership skills and bravery. Becoming comfortable with speaking up and taking the lead build confidence. Students further those skills by learning to support their peers as they practice leadership and sharing ideas.
What better place to join a coding club than at The Leonardo Museum of Creativity and Innovation. Students will find inspiration throughout the exhibits as they explore the intersections of science, tech, engineering and art.
