Girls Who Code, an educational nonprofit that aims to close the gender gap in STEM fields, has expanded its free seven-week summer immersion program to Atlanta, one of 11 host cities this year. Starting in June, 80 rising 11th- and 12th-grade girls will get an introduction to computer science—learning about robotics, plus app and website development. Didn’t make the deadline?

Since 1961, Atlanta magazine, the city’s premier general interest publication, has served as the authority on Atlanta, providing its readers with a mix of long-form nonfiction, lively lifestyle coverage, in-depth service journalism, and literary essays, columns, and profiles.
