We Use Art to Inspire
Girls in Computer Science.
Code/Art’s Innovative Approach
Code/Art is on a mission to increase the number of girls in computer science by delighting and inspiring them with the creative possibilities of computer programming. We strive to put young women, particularly young women from historically underrepresented 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 7,500 girls to date!
