Girls Who Code Club
Through this initiative we will introduce a Girls Who Code club. Girls will have an opportunity to engage with STEM activities and coding resources to build knowledge, communication and problem-solving skills. By providing this opportunity to girls and specifically those in the special education population we can continue to support them as they transition to high school and to future careers. The club would convene in early September and students will work alongside their Science, STEM and Special Education teachers to work on gaining mastery of coding knowledge. The girls will have monthly challenges-for example, October will be dedicated to building the KANO Computer kit during our sessions and then being asked to code it. Opportunities to code and work in a group setting with technology will allow students agency over their products and the opportunity to work together outside of their traditional classes. These skill sets will be necessary as students work toward transitioning to high school and all career opportunities.
