In CS4Girls camps, girls will find a supportive environment as they collaboratively learn the fundamentals of coding. Our camps cover a wide range of curriculum, including web development, video production and wearable technology. Whether it's building a personalized "About Me" webpage, creating professional-looking videos or making an LED bracelet, our camps put the fun in summer and build girls' confidence in STEM!
CS4Girls was founded by two Bay Area high school girls, Chloe Ng and Lauren Wong, to inspire other girls to pursue their dreams in STEM and take their first steps as future engineers. Pew Research finds currently, women represent only 25% of computer science jobs and 14% of engineering jobs. Through an engaging curriculum designed for girls, CS4Girls aims to bridge the gender gap and prepare girls for rewarding careers of the future.
