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 TAs 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 classrooms: Class 1 which is for those with very little to no computer science experience. Meets from 10am-12:30pmClass 2 for those that do have previous experience and want to keep expanding on their skills. Meets from 12pm-2:30pm
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.
