Monterey County high school girls: want to learn how to code?

Here's an intriguing opportunity to learn how to code, even if you have no experience.

The Girls Who Code Summer Immersion Program embeds 20 rising high school juniors and seniors inside a technology company or university setting from 9:00am - 4:00pm each day. Here, young women get hands-on experience in computing concepts, programming fundamentals, mobile phone development, robotics, and web development and design. Project-based curricular modules allow participants to build products and develop innovative solutions designed to inspire an interest in and enourage their pursuit of computer science.

Applications are due now and will be received until Feb. 12. Girls must be in their sophomore or junior year, and need two letters of recommendation. The closest program to Monterey County is in San Jose, so participants need to commute daily for seven weeks.  For more information, click here.
