The program for ages 8-12 follows the book Girls Who Code: Learn To Code and Change The World written by the founder of the Girls Who Code program. The club for ages 13-17 will investigate coding through a project that will be posted on their own website. Although the clubs are meant for girls, boys are welcome to participate as well.
