Girls Code
A camp designed to teach girls 8-12 about coding and computational thinking
Why Girls Code
We wanted to provide the opportunity for girls to learn about coding from an early age. For them to realize that coding is fun and a great career path for those interested. We wanted to provide a way to get these girls engaged and excited about coding. Thus, Girls Code was born.
Girls Code provides an opportunity for girls ages 8 - 12 to learn, from professional coders, about coding. The girls also learn about computational thinking, ability to break down a large task into smaller steps, through various unplugged (not on the computer) activities.
What is Girls Code
Girls Code is an annual camp hosted at the InsideSales.com HQ in Provo, Utah, that lasts for four days. During these four days, girls, ages 8-12, learn about coding from employees and local volunteers. The girls spend 40% of their time coding on the computers utilizing code.org, Scratch, and Blockly as well as working directly with robots. The other 60% of the time, the girls participate in various unplugged (not on the computer) activities, that reinforce their understanding of coding.

How To Be Involved With Girls Code
If you are interested in hosting your own girls code camp (or some variation), we'd be more than willing to lend a hand. We can work with you to help build the curriculum and the activities. We will share what has and hasn't worked in our past camps and help you build the agenda for your camp.
Some of the tools and languages the girls learn during the camp.
