Creativity, Meet STEM Education
We offer creative, fun, exciting workshops and classes for girls and women, so that learning STEM, with a tech-edge, becomes second nature.
Teaching Gals How to Code
We teach technology to girls & women without the egos and attitudes, customizing it to female interests and learning styles.
Whether you are just starting out, a budding tech guru, or a seasoned developer looking to gain new skills, we offer a variety of different classes and workshops.
We have classes and workshops for all ages, including multi-generational ones so you and your favorite kid can join forces for twenty-first century female bonding.
Most of our kids’ classes are free at community centers and schools.
Women’s computer training and bootcamps are cost-effective. You may also be eligible for work-study discounts or need-based assistance.

We were ready to teach kids how to code using a our Create your own Virtual Pet in Scratch workbook. Esperanza was prepared on their end with a brand new computer center. Everything was in place to get kids coding during the week of an Hour of Code. And then the inevitable happened. Esperanza’s new computers went down right as we were getting started. This could have been disastrous, but we came prepared. We just so happened to have our Unplugged Code activity handy.
After talking about the weather, one of the easiest ways to strike up a conversation with someone is to ask them “what do you do?” Like you, I’ve been asked this a lot. I don’t know what kind of responses you get, but one of the top ten I receive is, “Really? You don’t look like a programmer!” I usually smile, and try to find something witty to say, often asking them in return what they think a programmer should look like.
Believe it or not, you don’t need to have access to computers to teach kids computational thinking. Students can learn some important practices with just a paper and a pencil. Here’s a project kids can complete without any computer access. Even if you have your Hour of Code project ready to go online, you may want to keep this nearby as a handy backup in case the unexpected happens.
