Description of GWC @ Columbia University
The Girls Who Code Clubs Program Experience:

This club chapter meets once a week on Saturday mornings on Columbia University's campus. Selected girls are taught computer science including project-based activities by a teacher alongside TA's in a fun, supportive, and engaging environment. As participants, girls are expected to attend all meetings as there is a strict attendance policy. Girls will also be provided mentors from the Columbia University community.

We have two classes available:
Class 1, which is for those with no to very little computer science experience (Scratch and Python).
Meets from 10am-12:30pm
Class 2, for those that do have previous experience and want to keep expanding on their skills (HTML/CSS/Javascript). Meets from 12:45pm-3:15pm

Based on your application we will determine which class is better suited to make your experience the best possible if you do not specify!

Please note that as of this time, transportation will be given on a need-only basis. We have limited funding to cover transportation costs, so a separate transportation-need application can be requested.
