Girls Make Apps
A national nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to closing the gender gap in tech by providing educational opportunities for girls in computer science.
We accomplish our mission through hands-on workshops, classes, hackathons, and events that empower women to pursue computer science. Although we are based in NYC, our impact is nationwide as we have programs running across the country. We offer support to young women ranging from elementary school to college students and beyond.
We are hosting a 3-session Website Development Camp for middle school girls in the greater Philadelphia area. We will teach the students about HTML and CSS while helping them create their own websites. The camp will take place January 13th, 20th, and 27th from 1-5pm.
ByteHacks is our largest event, with a total impact of 300+ women and 165 in-person attendees. ByteHacks is a 24-hour long hackathon that took place last June at Spotify NY. The hackathon offered 2 days of workshops, mentorship, and hacking for social impact. See the winners on our Devpost page.
If you would like to attend any of our future events, connect with us through social media or email so we can add you to our events mailing list! We are hosting a Machine Learning workshop in September and an 8-week web development camp starting October.
