Tech Scholars for Teen Girls

Teen girls can learn to code online in a supportive, all-girl environment! Tech Scholars learn to code digital projects while researching how women across the spectrum of race, class, and sexuality exercised power and effected change in history.

Students learn coding (HTML, CSS, and JavaScript) to design and build their own digital projects—including games, apps, and websites. Live interaction with the instructor and mentors from the technology field helps students explore career options and develop new skills.

Tech Scholars is open to high school students (grades 9–12) who self-identify as girls.
