Girls Can Code believes that education is key for the future of our society. By providing a nurturing and supporting environment for girls we encourage them to explore different technologies and become a pivotal player to shape tomorrow’s digital world.
Girls are curious, capable and creative – every girl deserves to take part in directing and creating technology which are shaping our world.
Offering workshops to schools is key to reach girls that would otherwise not be exposed to such skills. Girls Can Code believes in giving all girls the possibility to discover technology in a fun way. We do this by delivering inspiring tech themed workshops at schools (for girls and boys) and offering exclusive coding clubs as well as team and individual based preparations for girls, allowing them to participate in the Swiss Olympiad in Informatics or FIRST LEGO League.
Our curriculum is designed in accordance with the Computer Science Lehrplan Volksschule Kanton Zürich.
