Girls Code the World Interest Form
Hi all! Our names are Sydney Gibbard and Mina Shokoufandeh, and we both graduated from The Pennington School in 2019. Currently, Sydney attends Penn State Schreyer Honors College to study biomedical engineering and pre-medicine. Mina attends Tufts University and studies biomedical sciences and biology.
During the summer of 2018, we started a camp called Girls Code the World. Historically, our program has been a week-long and focuses on inspiring young girls to go into STEM-related fields and introducing the possibilities of STEM-related careers.
The past two years, we have hosted twelve girls from the Christina Seix Academy (CSA) in Trenton, NJ, with whom Pennington has an ongoing relationship. Christina Seix is a private school funded by outside donors to provide quality education to families who wouldn’t have access to this level of learning otherwise and provides family services and resources for children to be successful beyond the classroom. Camp this summer will be extended to two weeks and held on a virtual platform.
This summer, Sydney and Mina are participating in Happy Valley LaunchBox's 2020 Summer Founders Program through Penn State. The program provides us with a grant to develop Girls Code the World into an official nonprofit organization and expand its reach.
One way we want to expand is by establishing relationships with more high school and college girls who are passionate about STEM and would be interested in being involved with Girls Code the World through leadership and mentorship. That’s what you’re here for! As a female student engaged with STEM, we hope to gage your interest in being involved with such a program in the future.
Please take about 15-20 minutes to answer the following questions honestly and clearly! We won’t be sending this information to your school, so feel free to be honest. Thank you so much for your time and consideration.
