Girls Who Code

The Loyola Center for Textual Studies and Digital Humanities is proud to host its very own chapter of Girls Who Code. According to the Girls Who Code website, "computing is where the jobs are — and where they will be in the future, but fewer than 1 in 5 computer science graduates are women." Our Saturday morning program is a great way for girls to learn real-world computer coding skills while working with friendly and professional volunteers. 

Girls Who Code at Loyola is starting up again in late September 2019, and we would love for your 6th-12th grade students to join us!
