Ready for a different kind of summer camp? Learn the valuable skill set of “code” (a.k.a. computer programming) with this special summer camp series of workshops designed to introduce girls to this ever-expanding technology field!

This special summer camp will be facilitated by Patrice Gans, Founder & Executive Director of Random Hacks of Kindness, Jr.

The week long camp will be an introduction to coding while connecting with like-minded girls to build community and to design and code a computer science impact project.

Students will participate in virtual daily coding lessons of 1 ½ hours on Google Meet Learning Scratch.

knowledge. Additional resources will be provided as needed. No prior computer coding experience required.
