Code Niñas Returning to Glow Academy!
We are excited to bring the Code Niñas program to GLOW Academy starting Wednesday November 3. Classes will run afterschool every Wednesday 3.45p-5p at the GLOW Campus located at 4100 Sunglow Dr. in Wilmington. Classes will start February 1 and be conducted in 4-6 week modules where students will work on small data science and coding projects that emphasize the fundamentals of basic to intermediate level coding and app-based development. No prior experience necessary, just a love for computer science and having a good time along the way!
This is a free program and spaces are limited to 20 girls, with a few spaces available for non-GLOW girl students, so be sure to register soon to secure your spot.

What is Code Niñas?
Code Niñas is the first program of its kind in Wilmington, providing a series of fun and interactive workshops for girls in the world of information technology and computer science. Girls are the future leaders of science and technology, and by participating in Code Girls, students will gain confidence and skills in the fundamentals of computer building and coding with Python, web development, database management, and so much more. Students will experience real-world subject matter, and more importantly how to apply skills learned in their everyday life and future career paths. Code Girls will empower girls and minorities to be equal participants and future leaders in computer sciences and STEM learning. It promises to be a fun, inspiring, and rewarding experience for all!

What is required of participants in the Code Girls program
During the program, students will learn the fundamentals of coding working in small teams and be mentored by early career women in computer science and technology. If new to the program, each participant will complete one week of beginner level instruction in computer coding and basic web design. Following the introductory week, all groups will work together on an intermediate level coding research project. Each group may choose their coding project from a list of public health and climate change themes. Each group will present their projects at the Earth Day Summit on Saturday April 22, 2023 at GLOW Academy.
When do workshops run?
Classes are all conducted in-person at GLOW Academy each Wednesday from 3.45p-5p. The schedule of events will be posted soon on this page.
