Girls Who Code  Summer Session sponsored by Chevron and TFAE hosted local girls in a  technology camp held at Fletcher Technical College June 14-18 .

Twenty Five girls entering grades 5-9th joined us from across Terrebonne Parish for a week filed with coding, hands-on STEM activities, sisterhood, hear from amazing women in STEM careers, and much more!

 

Below are photos, videos, projects, and more from our fun week together. It's our hope that these awesome Girls Who Code learned not only about technology, but how to never give up!

Thank you Chevron for funding this camp and continued support of education!

Our brave, inspiring, and awesome Girls Who Code!
Bravenotperfect

Puzzle Pieces


By itself, didn't look like much but when combined all of their pieces together - it revealed a secret code, which happened to be the motto of our camp:
BRAVE NOT PERFECT!

In addition to coding and technology, our camp is also about building confidence, speaking to and about ourselves positively, learning to be brave, and knowing it's better to TRY than to be perfect.

Binary Bracelets

Code2
Computers send and store all information using binary code, a way that information can be represented using only two options. Our Girls Who Code explored this idea by making Binary Bracelets.
