Girls Who CodeWhat is Girls Who Code?

Girls Who Code is a national non-profit organization, working to close the gender gap in technology.  The Girls Who Code programs educate, equip, and inspire girls with the computing skills they’ll need to pursue 21st century opportunities. A sense of community is at the center of everything as it relates to sisterhood within this organization.  When girls feel a sense of connection and belonging, they are more willing to be brave and take risks because they know                                                   they have the support of their Girls Who Code sisters.

Girls Who Code, coordinated/facilitated by CCAP’s Game Design and Development teacher, Mrs. Yvette Edwards Brown, Cybersecurity Software Operations teacher, Mr. William Hallwig, and Instructional Technology Resource Teacher (ITRT), Sabrina Hayes. This organization is the first and only of its kind in the Suffolk Public Schools’ district. 

The club currently has eight (8) student members from Game Design and Cybersecurity Software Operations.  The invitation to join is for CCAP female students programs. Interested CCAP students should contact Mrs. Yvette Edwards Brown and Mr. William Hallwig. The club meets every Friday, 10:00 am via virtual communication.  The next meeting is October 9, 2020, 10:00 AM.
