Stanford Girls Teaching Girls to Code's annual Code Camp
Our sixth annual Code Camp will be our biggest event of the year. In the past, we have had more than 200 high school girls participate. Students have the opportunity to work with current Stanford students who are passionate about computer science and want to inspire high school girls to give it a try. Last year, we had more than 40 mentors working with the high school girls. In addition to learning basic coding skills and interacting with students studying computer science, students are able to try out different tracks in computer science. These tracks cover a wide range, from web design to artificial intelligence to virtual reality and more. Mark your calendars and get ready for a great event!
- Explore different topics of your preference, such as web design, artificial intelligence, and computational biology. All are taught at a hands-on introductory level.
- Eat lunch and hang out for a day with Stanford students. Many of us come from a variety of STEM and non-STEM backgrounds and learned about computer science in much the same way --- curiosity! We certainly didn’t know we liked it until we’ve tried. This is a great opportunity to talk to us about the exciting mix of projects we work on using computer science, combining interests in education, art, health, and more.
- Walk away with cool projects to show others, and to continue working on beyond our camp! Examples include building a webpage and mobile app.

Applications are now open! We’re looking for female high school students who have little or no exposure to computer science. All that is required is an open and curious mind, and a willingness to learn. We will accept students on a rolling basis, so submit your application ASAP to secure a spot! Applications close Friday, March 30th, at 11:59 PM.
