Registration now open for 2019 Girls Who Code Club at Ohio State Lima

August 23, 2019

Registration for the 2019 Ohio State Lima Girls Who Code Club is now open online lima.osu.edu/gwc. Girls Who Code is a free, after school computer science club for students grades 6-12. It will meet Mondays Sept. 30-Dec. 2, 2019 at Ohio State Lima. Girls Who Code is designed to spark interest and confidence in the programming field.

Throughout the guided program, students learn core concepts through projects based on their interests, such as music, art or games. In addition to individual projects, students will work together on a Computer Science Impact Project, where they will use computer science to solve a problem relevant to the club and community.
Club members learn the concepts of loops, variables, conditionals, and functions that form the basis for all programming languages — whether they want to build a website, an app, or a robot.

Girls Who Code is a national non-profit dedicated to closing the gender gap in technology. According to the organization, the clubs have 185,000 current and past participants across the 50 states. For more about Girls Who Code, visit the website at girlswhocode.com.

The Ohio State Lima Girls Who Code Club will be limited to 20 participants, and registration forms are available online. The club facilitators are Sabine Jeschonnek, professor of physics; Nicoleta Roman, associate professor of computer science/engineering; and Steve Borga, lecturer in mathematics.

While Girls Who Code is aimed at girls in middle and high school, boys are also welcome to participate.
