Inspiring Girls to Code

We Use Art to Increase the Number of

Girls Studying Computer Science

Code/Art is a non-profit whose mission is to increase the number of girls studying computer science by delighting and inspiring them with the creative possibilities of computer programming. We strive to put young women, particularly young women from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, on track for future tech careers by providing welcoming early coding programs that focus on art, creativity and social good.

 We have reached over 6,280 girls to date!

What Participants Had to Say

At Code/Art, I’ve learned to refine my current coding skills, but I’ve also learned some exciting NEW coding skills, especially in animation! Code/Art has definitely taught me a lot about coding.

Jenna Hart

Student

By opening the doors to the previously male-dominated field of coding, Code/Art inspires our daughters to explore coding, showcase their talents, and pursue careers in this growing industry.

Vilmary Perez

Parent

I’ve watched tentative students become skilled and confident as they progress through the workshops. I’ve watched complete beginners learn — in one day — to develop their own creative programs. Code/Art has made me a more experienced teacher and computer scientist.
