Roanoke County Public Library (RCPL) is launching its next Girls Who Code program series in March. Girls, grades 3-12, will learn from library staff via tutorials and materials provided by Girls Who Code, a national nonprofit reaching nearly 90,000 girls of all backgrounds across America.
Girls Who Code, founded by Reshma Saujani in 2012, focuses on closing the gender gap in technology. In addition to creating a large network of future female engineers, the club boosts confidence and teaches teamwork skills.
Clubs at RCPL will run from the week of March 3 through the week of May 11. Girls Who Code required those who sign up to commit to attendance of 80% of club meetings.
Registrations begin Mon., February 3. Call your library to sign up for an orientation session to kick off the spring sessions.
Orientations will be held the week of February 24 at your club’s normal meeting time. Orientation is mandatory for new members.
