Coding Club for Girls

7th -12th Grade Girls in Northeast Missouri

Computer Programming

is the language of the future.

Don’t get left behind!

Girls: Do you like puzzles and logic problems? Do you like math and science?  If yes, computer coding may be a natural fit for you! Computer coding is a job skill that will help individuals in all professions be more marketable.   Don’t miss out on the chance to learn about computer programming with your friends

Why learn computer programming?

Programming fosters creativity, reasoning, and problem solving. The programmer gets the opportunity to create something from nothing, use logic to turn programming constructs into a form that a computer can run, and, when things don’t work quite as well as expected, use problem solving to figure out what has gone wrong. Programming is a fun, sometimes challenging (and occasionally frustrating) activity, and the skills learned from it can be useful both in school and at work.”
