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.
The micro:bit Base kit is the first kit in the new three kit set.
The Base Kit, custom-designed by Boolean Girl and Virginia Tech Thinkabit Labs, includes a micro:bit microcontroller and components to connect devices like lights and motors via the GPIO pins. It is designed to spark an interest in technology, computer science and engineering. Young learners get hands-on experience and make a connection between abstract ideas of coding and real world outcomes in hardware and software. While designing, building, and prototyping physical gadgets young learners discover how to work to iteratively improve a solution along the way making and learning as they create.
Bring coding to your school. Learn about programs for teachers. The thing we love about school clubs is working together. – School club participant
I loved the camp! I did not know how to code half of the things I can code now! The camp helped me a lot. – Camper
The Clubhouse is so much fun. I like that it is all girls. I learned a lot and made new friends. – Alexandria, Va 6th Grader.
