We’re seeking facilitators for this year’s Girls Who Code series

Code and girlThe Moore Public Library will continue its popular Girls Who Code club this fall, and the library is looking for adult facilitators to lead sessions.

Girls Who Code is a movement seeking to push more young women in the direction of a career in computer science. Participants will learn about different types of computer programming and coding in a series that will meet on Mondays, Sept. 10 through Dec. 10, from 4 to 6 p.m. The series will be for girls going into grades 6 through 12.

Facilitators come from many backgrounds, including teachers, computer scientists, librarians, parents, college students or volunteers from virtually any field. Many facilitators actually have no technical experience and learn to code alongside the club members.

The facilitators guide the club through curriculum, helping to build a sisterhood within the club while the group learns ways to use computer science to impact the community. This fall, the focus will be on exploring virtual reality with the CoSpaces technology.
