Women hold only 24 percent of the computer programming jobs in the United States. These are some of the most lucrative careers in our country. Plus, gender diverse perspectives are a vital need in the field of computer science. This class will ask girls involved to choose, research, and develop projects of their own interest and aid them in researching and choosing coding languages or programs that will help them best complete their projects. The teacher will act as coach linking them with expert help, the programs that will help them, and professional online tutorials. Laptops are a requirement. Projects may include graphic design, app design, Python projects, game design, or mini-computing.
