Wal-Mart; and Sam’s Club will be hosting two Girls Who Code summer immersion program sites this summer. This seven week introduction to computer science experience targets rising 11th and 12th grade girls. No prior computer science or STEM experience is required. Also, new this year for our area, we are expanding the application to rise in 10th grade girls as part of a pilot. In addition to being free, the program offers all participants free lunch, use of a laptop, and stipend options for qualifying students to help pay for transportation or to support students who might otherwise earn a summer income. The deadline to apply is March 13 and early applicants get priority consideration. Apply at girlswhocode.com/summer-immersion-programs/
