The need:  Only 18% of Computer Science degrees in the United States are awarded to women.  Women’s involvement in computer science has plummeted.  In the past 20 years, it has dropped by 40%.

The Lancaster Science Factory presents Girls Code Club to address this urgent issue and inspire the next generation of female computer scientists.

  • Who: Girls aged 8-13
  • What: A monthly, facilitated meetup for girls to learn computer science concepts and coding applications. Girls will learn to design their own website, video game, or computer program based on their individual interests.
  • Where: The Lancaster Science Factory’s Castagna Learning Center at 454 New Holland Avenue in Lancaster, PA
  • Cost: $81 per girl covers all 9 sessions in either Cohort 1, Cohort 2, or Cohort 3.
