We are excited to offer a code camp for female students in grades 8-12!

GirlsCode++ is a one day event to teach 8th-12th grade girls about programming. The beginner group will learn HTML and CSS to build their own website. Students with prior HTML and CSS experience may choose to add JavaScript to their skills in the advanced group. They will also learn about careers in computer science. A light breakfast and lunch will be included.

This event would not be possible without our sponsors, Best Buy, Converge Consulting, ImOn Communications, Kum & Go, McKee Voorhees & Sease, US Bank, Workiva, and Pear Deck. A big thank you to everyone involved!

Limited scholarships are available. Scholarship application: Click here

Encouraging Girls to Experience Computer Science

While Computer Science is one of the fastest growing majors today, women make up only 18% of graduates. We can change this and have fun at the same time.

In February 2016, we held the first girls-only code camp in Iowa. The event exceeded our expectations – more than 50 middle and high school girls attended! We’ve since decided to support a variety of programs state-wide aimed at encouraging girls to experience and consider careers in computer science.

Registration and online ticket sales will be accepted until November 11 at 5:00 p.m. Registration is subject to the NewBoCo Event Cancellation Policy. – If you have any questions, email the NewBoCo K-12 Team.
