Girls Who Code


Brush High School senior, Nia Terrell has established our district's first chapter of Girls Who Code.  Girls Who Code is a nonprofit organization which aims to support and increase the number of women in computer science by equipping young women with the necessary computing skills to pursue 21st century opportunities.  Nia is a student in the EXCEL Tech Information, Technology and Programming class at Mayfield High School.  As one of only 6 girls in her program, Nia sees first-hand the gender gap in technology.  Right now fewer that 1 in 5 computer science graduates are women. Girls Who Code clubs can start as early as 4th grade and it is Nia's hope that this is just the start for the program in SEL.  Ms. Sallie Fine serves as the faculty adviser.  Meetings are held on alternate Tuesdays throughout the school year and new students are always welcome.
