< Promoting early interest in Computer Science fields among girls />

A GirlsBuild intiative.

< About Us />

This program is headed by a group of girls at North Oconee High School, interested in computer science and spreading awareness of the field.

Our school offers a large number of computer science classes, but sees a small number of females pursue these courses. We are interested in CS GO as a means of solving this problem.

In order to accomplish this goal, our group will be hosting computer science sessions once or twice every month. During these sessions, middle school students from our county will be able to come after school and learn various CS related skills. The sessions will consist of a short lesson regarding a specific subject, followed by plenty of free time for students to work on programming activities with the help of group instructors. We will also be providing students with resources with which they can continue to practice coding at home.

 

< Programming />

One of our goals is to teach girls programming at an early age.

< Long Term Interest />

We want girls to be interested in computer science as a possible career! As such, we hope to provide resources and ideas for those who want to continue their CS education in later years and high school.

< Environment for Learning />

We want to foster a caring, nurturing environment where girls will be able to learn as much as they can with guidance and support :)
