Who we Are…

Girls Who Code is a national Club that is designed as a free after-school program for 6th-12th grade girls to join a sisterhood of supportive peers and role models We use computer science (CS) to change the world with a mission to close the gender gap in CS. Clubs are led by adult facilitators.

Our RAIN Club is a 6th-12th grade program primarily for Girls. Here’s an overview of the Club Curriculum that focuses on a Girls Who Code Project where girls work in teams to solve a real world problem they care about through code. This year we are creating an animation in Alice3 on individual Webpages about “Homelessness in Tacoma.”

The Girls Who Code curriculum is designed for students with a wide range of computer science experience. We have activities for students with zero computer science experience all the way up to college-level concepts. Girls will learn to use computer science to impact their community, and join a supportive sisterhood of peers and role models across the US.

By the end of the Club year, all girls will:

  • Become part of a safe and supportive environment of peers & role models.

  • Learn to see themselves as computer scientists.

  • Work on a team to design and build a Computer Science “CS” Impact Project that solves real world problems they care about.

  • Gain exposure to real-world project management and problem-solving techniques.

  • Learn the foundational computer science of loops, variables, conditionals, and functions that form the basis for all programming languages - whether they want to build a website, an app, or a robot.

  • Learn a variety of programming languages from block-based code (Scratch) to Python, Javascript, and depending on student level, more advanced topics like object-oriented programming, data structures, and algorithms.

RAIN's GWC meets most Wednesdays from 3:30 -5pm until June. We always accept newcomers and love mentors with experience in programming!
