Boolean Girl, a nonprofit founded in 2014, is educating girls to code, build, invent and animate. We provide girls-only and co-ed classes, camps and online education, teaching coding and engineering in an inclusive, welcoming environment.
We are engineers, parents and educators who want to see every opportunity available to every child. We founded Boolean Girl, because we spent years in the tech industry and noticed a persistent problem: not enough diversity in tech. We’re determined to do something about it.
By teaching girls, under-represented groups and low-income kids how to code and build engineering projects, we are reversing the trend and diversifying the industries of tomorrow Join us.
Boolean Box is a self-contained computer engineering kit designed for ages 8 and up. Girls can learn coding, build electronics, and more with this build-it-yourself computer. The Boolean Box was created when we needed a kit to teach girls how to program and become engineers. We experimented with kits based on a Raspberry Pi and paid attention to what the girls liked and we refined the kit until we found a combination that met our learning objectives. As the girls got their hands on them, they asked for kits of their own.
The thing we love about clubs is working together. We did advanced Scratch projects. It was cool to work with new friends to create stuff. – Club participant
I like the class! I did not know how to code half of the things I can code now! The class helped me a lot. – Full STEM Ahead attendee
It’s going really well. Small projects help.We keep coming back to learn something new every time. – Boolean University user
