App Camp For Girls

App Camp For Girls seeks to address the gender imbalance in technology professions by inspiring middle-school age girls with a broad introduction to the process of app development, from brainstorming and designing ideas to building and pitching their unique apps. We believe that the experience of creating an app in one week can spark the enthusiasm that will propel girls to pursue further tech education.

In addition, App Camp For Girls is a place for women and other underrepresented genders in the tech community to come together, network, and provide mutual support in their endeavors to advance in the field of software development. We encourage and support our volunteers to continue their own education in programming and design.
