Boolean Girl Clubs are ongoing programs where girls learn to code and build engineering projects. As a non-profit, Boolean Girl’s mission is to inspire girls to code, build, invent and animate, preparing girls everywhere to explore computer programming and engineering. Our approach is fun and effective, and we’ve used it to teach thousands of girls.
The Boolean Girl Clubhouse meets in Falls Church VA the 4th Saturday of the month. Other clubs are forming. A club might meet after school, on the weekend at a local rec center, or at any public space. There are many clubs at schools for the students of the school. The clubs below are open to any girl (and in some cases boys) that would like to attend.
Want to help, we have paid and volunteer positions available, Jobs!
At the clubhouse students work in the lab on self paced projects with the help of our staff.
The staff to student ratio is typically 1-5.
In addition, students are encouraged to join booster sessions that cover special topics. The booster sessions for Feb are below.

Get started coding in Scratch
For new coders this booster gives you everything you need to know to get started coding. Play a game with Scratch Blocks, learn how to build a computer and start designing your first program.
Making Stories: Beginning, Middle, and End
Game Building - How to keep score
This short session covers all the skills needed to keep score, keep track of lives or add a timer to your game using variables.
Game Building: Making Sprites Move
All games need sprites that move. Sometimes the sprite moves on its own like a pinky in PacMan. Sometimes the player controls the movement of the Sprite with the keyboard, think PacMan. In this Booster, learn how to add movement to your games.
Build a photobooth and take selfies
Learn how to add a camera to your computer. Build your own photo booth then write code in Scratch or Python to make it take pictures or video. Recommended for girls 10+ that have been coding in Scratch for at least a year.
