What is the mission of Supergirls Code?
01. Only 18% of computer science degrees are earned by women.
We hope to empower girls to learn to code through high school mentors and a group of supportive peers working towards the same goals. Let's close the gender gap in computer science!
02. What about boys?
It's important for boys to learn to code as well! But coding is already more popular among boys, and they've likely never experienced being the only boy in a computer science class.
03. Over the last ten years growth in STEM jobs has been three times faster than growth in non-STEM fields
Women are falling behind in the professional world in one of the fastest growing fields. Through supporting girls in learning to code, we hope to inspire girls to pursue after careers in STEM.
04. Code is applicable in all fields
Give girls confidence no matter what field they are interested in pursuing, and show the versatility of code through all different types of interests! From games and animations to fashion and music, code is the language of the future.
05. Coding is Fun
Code can be used to create awesome apps, websites, videos, blogs, and more! Girls will have a great time learning to code, as well as making new friends and going outside of their comfort zone!
