Girls Who Code Club
Fall 2016 Registration is now open! Please sign up
through the library e-registration system for the
Thursday evening class held between 6:30 – 8:30 pm,
starting September 29th.
Chester Springs Library announced today the launch of a new Girls Who Code Club, a community-based affiliate of the national non-profit organization Girls Who Code, which seeks to inspire, educate and equip girls with the computing skills to pursue 21st century opportunities.
Chester Springs Library is thrilled to be a part of the Girls Who Code Club programs, which bring high-quality computer science education to girls in grades 6-12 nationwide. By 2020, there will be 1.4 million jobs open in the computing related fields, but women educated in the United States are only on pace to fill 3% of them. By providing low-cost, high-impact programming like the Chester Springs Library Club, Girls Who Code and its community partners nationwide are seeking to eliminate the gender gap in technology.
The Chester Springs Library Girls Who Code Club will begin in September 2016. Registration is required and space is limited. For more information, please contact the library at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (610) 827-9212.
This program was made possible by a Computer Lab Grant from the Huston Foundation. Thank you for your support!
