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? Go to girlswho­code.com to learn how to start a GWC club in your middle or high school, or sign up for paid camps through Kids 4 Coding or iD Tech.
