Girls Who Code

CGPS is excited to share that we are partnering with the nationally-recognized organization Girls Who Code to host some two-week long summer programs dedicated to engaging young women with technology and coding. No previous coding experience is required.

 

Since 2012, Girls Who Code has connected over 40,000 girls across the country to coding education and a community of fellow creators!

Wearable Tech & Fashion Design

Ages: 13-18

When: 07/09/2018 - 07/20/2018 (M - F, 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM)

Where: Columbia Grammar and Prep School

Register: https://campscui.active.com/orgs/GIRLSWHOCODE#/selectSessions/2155704/fi...

 

Girls enrolled in this course not only learn the basics of the programming language C, but will also explore the ever-expanding world of wearable tech using LilyPad Arduino. In week one, students will learn about circuits, wearables, and build small projects that are designed to teach them the basics of the C programming language and the GWC Core4 programming Concepts: loops, variables, conditionals, and functions. In week two, girls will take what they have learned and use it to influence the world around them by designing, building, and presenting a piece of wearable tech that solves a social problem or that reflects their personal interests. At the end of the program each girl will take home their arduino accounts, project code, and a personal piece of wearable tech they designed during the course!

iPhone App Development

Ages: 13-18

When: 07/23/2018 - 08/03/2018 (M - F, 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM)

Where: Columbia Grammar and Prep School

Register: https://campscui.active.com/orgs/GIRLSWHOCODE#/selectSessions/2155704/fi...

 

In this course girls will use the programming language Swift and Apple’s XCode development environment to design and build their own iPhone apps. In week one, girls will learn the fundamentals of the Swift programming language and build confidence developing in the XCode environment by working on small projects that are designed to teach them the GWC Core4 programming Concepts: loops, variables, conditionals, and functions. In week two, girls will develop their teamwork and leadership skills while applying the Core4 to design, build, and present an iPhone app that solves a social problem or that reflects their interests. At the end of the program each girl will be able to take home their iPhone or iPad app and their project code. Students have the option to bring their own device only if it is a Mac laptop OS Sierra 10.12 or later and they need to be able to install programs and should have all the needed passwords to do so.
