Coding Camps

July 29 - August 3: Code like a Girl

Code Like a Girl is a coding camp for rising 4th - 6th Grade girls.
Campers will:

No experience required, just a desire to be creative and get inspired about the field of STEM with other young girls!

A Brentwood School Alumna and Honors Computer Science student (three years), attending Northwestern University this fall to major in Computer Science, Sadie '19, is your Camp Leader. Sadie, an experienced coding camp counselor and leader, is committed to encouraging other young girls to become interested in computer science and/or STEM fields.

Technology is changing our world. Diversity in computing is lacking. Let's increase girls' exposure to Computer Science! Girls Get IT! is a coding camp for rising 3rd - 5th Grade girls.
Campers will:

  • Create fun games and programs using Scratch (a very beginner-friendly block based language).
  • Attend field trips to an IT company and an escape room!
  • Solve logic games, puzzles, scavenger hunts

Brentwood Alumnae and top computer science students (learning Java, HTML, CSS, and Processing), Angelica '18 and Georgia '18, current college students, are your Camp Leaders. Computing has always been their passion, and they hope to inspire other young girls and spark their interest in STEM at a young age.
