Summer Webmaking Camp for Girls ages 9-13

August 14 @ 10:00 am - August 19 @ 4:00 pm

$450

Girls Learning Code Camps are designed for creative girls between the ages of 9 and 13 years old who want to use technology to change the world.
Technology can be intimidating – but can also be extremely rewarding, with dedication and perseverance. At our technology camps, we will help girls who love technology become creators and not just consumers of technology.
Our focus is to make sure that these learning experiences are fun, engaging, empowering and inspirational. Through hands-on, collaborative, project-based learning, girls end each day having built something. These camp experiences are designed to help girls see technology in a whole new light – as a medium for self-expression, and as a means for changing the world.
Girls will learn all about coding and designing websites with HTML & CSS, Pixlr, Mozilla Thimble and more! Girls will also develop public speaking skills, an entrepreneurship mindset, teamwork, and other skills!
Girls will work in teams throughout the week to experience what it’s like to create amazing things with others. The more the merrier! Encourage your kid’s friends to enroll in camp as well.
We want to help girls:

1. Discover a passion for learning about technology

2. Experience the satisfaction that comes from being a builder – not just consumer – of the web and technology

3. Become more confident and self-assured makers

4. Develop a willingness to try new things

5. Increase their knowledge of technology-related careers

…all while having fun!

Note: Camps run from 9:30am-4:00pm with before and after care included (8:30-9:30am and 4:00-5:30pm).
