Nonprofit Girls Who Code is unveiling an new summer program called Campus. According to GWC, the program will offer a slew of educational opportunities in tech.

“Girls Who Code is expanding its reach across the US with a brand new summer program, Campus. Campus offers Girls Who Code’s first-ever specialized coding courses to help middle and high schools girls get an edge for college and connect with other girls with similar interests. The two-week intensive courses, hosted on select school and university campuses, go deep on a range of topics from Website Design and Development to Wearable Tech & Fashion Design and iPhone App Development.”

Only 1 in four coders is a girl, according to Girls Who Code. And GWC’s mission is to close that gap by encouraging young girls to geek out with glee! The organization says they’ve reached over 40,000 girls so far and want to reach a thousand more on college campuses across six cities including DePaul University in Chicago.
