Girls Who Code
Summer Immersion Program
June 24 - August 12, 2015
To empower more young women to pursue degrees and careers in Science,Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) fields, BSA | The Software Alliance, along with Lockheed Martin and Georgetown University sponsored the Washington, DC, area’s inaugural Girls Who Code Summer Immersion Program. The Girls Who Code program, which kicked off June 24, brought 60 young women from throughout the DC region to Georgetown University’s downtown campus for seven weeks of intensive instruction in computing skills, ranging from mobile app development to web design to robotics.
In addition to learning to code, students heard from influential industry leaders and government officials inside the classroom, and took field trips around DC to meet with leaders in technology and government. The Summer Immersion Program also included informal mentorship opportunities focusing on career and educational development, where students were paired with leading female executives from the DC area.
