About

Iowa Girls Code Camp is the first ever coding camp for high school girls in the state of Iowa.
While Computer Science is one of the fastest growing majors today,
women make up only 0% of graduates.

Our goal is to educate young Iowa women about careers in Computer Science and give them the skills to start coding on their own.
