NCWIT She Can Tech Computer Science for Girls
NCWIT (National Center for Women and Information Technology) AspireIT connects high school and college women with K-12 girls interested in computing. Using a near-peer model, program leaders teach younger girls fundamentals in programming and computational thinking in fun, creative environments that are supported by program partners, like the Boys & Girls Club, from the NCWIT community. The relationship between the program leaders and their program partners fosters mentoring with technical professionals, increases young women’s confidence in their computing abilities, and develops valuable leadership skills.

She Can Tech is a free 15-day fast paced introductory Computer Science camp for girls grades 4-8 who are or will register as Boys & Girls Club members of Greater Northwest Indiana. From building apps to building light-up greeting cards, to building systems with Arduino, the girls will gain the skills and enthusiasm to complete a project of their choice with the help of a high school mentor that can be showcased to parents and the community at the end of the program.

She Can Tech meets from 4 to 6 pm beginning November 1st until November 21 at the Portage Boys & Girls Club. Participants must attend all days unless excused. No prior knowledge necessary; Challenges available for those who advance.
