Minot will soon have more 'Girls Who Code'

By  | 

MINOT, N.D. - Minot schools will so have more STEM options for girls.

"Girls Who Code" is a national non-profit program that teaches coding to female students grades third to twelfth. Full Steam Ahead is partnering with Women United to bring the program to ten schools in Minot this fall.

The program is free for the students, but they will hold a fundraiser to purchase equipment and pay to train instructors.

“We see with Full STEAM ahead that a lot of our tech programs and robotics and our coding classes that we have are largely attended by males. So we want to bring “Girls Who Code” here to help close that gap,” said Allison Auch, Full STEAM Ahead executive director.

The fundraiser will kick off Feb. 24 and run through Feb. 27. For information on how to donate visit the Women United website.
