Local high school students join forces with Stanford University mentors to create original programs at a previous Girls Teaching Girls to Code event.
Stanford University’s Girls Teaching Girls to Code program sponsored its fifth annual Code Camp last week, inviting high school girls interested in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math fields to learn from Stanford women mentors.
Approximately 200 high school girls and 40 Stanford mentors attended this year’s Code Camp, including students from Los Altos, Mountain View, Homestead and St. Francis high schools. The event aims to help girls new to STEM subjects learn programming basics, and offers different tracks in computer science with topics ranging from web development to virtual reality.
