Girls Who Code Summer Immersion Programs Return to Washington, D.C.
WASHINGTON, D.C. (JUNE 26, 2017) — Girls Who Code, the national nonprofit working to close the gender gap in technology, kicked off its 2017 Summer Immersion Program today in Washington, D.C.
This summer, AT&T is hosting 20 girls from DC, Maryland and Virginia who are participating in a Girls Who Code Summer Immersion Program – a 7-week computer science course that embeds female high school students in summer classrooms in technology companies and universities.
Students will learn the fundamentals of computer science while gaining exposure to the tech industry and enjoying mentorship from women working in technology.
Girls Who Code believes to close the gender gap in technology, we have to inspire girls to pursue technology jobs by exposing them to real-life role models. AT&T agrees, which is why, as part of AT&T Aspire, they have provided $3 million in funding to Girls Who Code since 2014.
