Great news! NMLSTA is partnering with Girls Who Code!
Introducing Our New At-Home Curriculum!
Usually, around this time of year, we’re gearing up for graduation, the start of our Summer Immersion Programs, or celebrating Girls Who Code’s birthday.
Instead, we’re all navigating a new normal: working remote, social distancing, taking classes online. So much feels uncertain right now, and it may be that way for a little while longer.
That is why, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re proud to launch Girls Who Code at Home, a weekly series of resources to keep up your learning at home, and ideas on how to stay busy and—most importantly—brave.
We hope these resources provide support for parents who are busy working from home, options for educators in need of remote work and—of course—inspiration for our girls.
We’ve always known our girls to innovate, to use code to solve problems facing their communities. These resources are designed to inspire them to create solutions around the issues they care about, and enable them to continue working their bravery muscles through this tough time.
