Girls Who Code at Loyola

The Center for Textual Studies & Digital Humanities (CTSDH) is proud to host the first Girls Who Code chapter at Loyola University Chicago's Lakeshore campus. Loyola's chapter debuted in Fall 2017 and the Spring 2018 session will begin on Saturday, February 3.

Girls Who Code is a national non-profit organization dedicated to closing the gender gap in technology. Tech jobs are among the fastest growing in the country, yet girls are being left behind. While interest in computer science ebbs over time, the biggest drop-off happens between the ages of 13-17. Girls Who Code began in New York with 20 students; it now has chapters in all fifty states serving over 50,000 young women.

The Loyola chapter will offer free, weekly classes in coding to 6th - 12th-grade students. Classes will be held on Saturday mornings from 10 am - 12 noon.
