Girls Who Code Club Kicks off at Howe!

The Howe "Girls Who Code" Club kicked off their official first meeting today! Fourteen students in 8th-11th grade enrolled in the club which meets weekly. Over the next 12 weeks, the girls will work collaboratively to create a technical solution to a problem that matters to them.  Club members enjoyed a team-building activity, created their club contract and brainstormed ideas for their Computer Science Impact Project.  Earlier in the year, Mrs. Parks' GWC club received a $500 grant to provide opportunities for the students to strengthen their understanding of fields of study and careers in the CS industry. The club members will be taking several field trips in the upcoming weeks to visit STEM-related businesses and connect with industry experts.
