Girls and non-binary individuals learn to code and build electronics in a fun, collaborative setting. The Clubhouse meets for three hours one afternoon per month, with a 1:5 staff-to-student ratio.
Children receive coding and electronics instruction, get hands-on time to develop their own creative projects and receive a lesson in “digital wellness” to promote responsible choices on computing devices.
Our in-person Clubhouse is temporarily closed due to COVID-19. We will reopen when it is deemed safe to do so, in accordance with the CDC and local authorities.
Girls love our Clubhouse, because it’s a collaborative, welcoming place to get hands-on coding instruction and unleash your creativity. We can’t wait to reopen. In the meantime, check back here for details!
