Girls Who Code Summer Immersion Program - March 1 Deadline!

This is an insane opportunity for young women that are entering the 11th/12th grade year. Only 100 spots for the area, so need to apply quickly. Only a few short answers in the app. No other criteria, really. Students must apply themselves.


I will forward you emails with fliers and information.
