Join us for a special Hour of Code mentoring workshop for girls (grades 5-9) to celebrate the 10th annual Computer Science Education Week!

Play Like a Girl is teaming up with Belmont University to teach your girls some cool computer coding skills, in conjunction with the launch of our 2023 Girls Who Code Clubs. Computer Science faculty and students will be helping girls along the way as they learn the logic of how a computer thinks – no computer experience needed!

Plus, students will receive a healthy snack and chances to win lots of great prizes including a new laptop computer. Then in mid-January, 35 young women will sit down at computers inside STRIVE Collegiate Academy and learn to code as members of the new Girls Who Code Club at the local middle school.

See you Saturday, December 3rd! Click the share button and invite your classmates, friends and Girl Scout troop.

Special Instructions: This is NOT A DROP-OFF EVENT. Adults are required to remain with their students for the duration of the 3-hour program.

Registration Fee: Tickets are free but a non-refundable $5 registration fee is required.

Girl Scout Badge/Patch: We encourage your Girl Scout to uncover inspiring experiences in STEM, entrepreneurship and innovation in fun, hands-on ways while building life skills that will serve her no matter what her future holds! She’ll explore exciting STEM careers and design solutions to out-of-this-world problems. From ideation to prototyping to practicing their pitch, Scouts become inventors as they design their own innovations. They also build confidence as they learn strategies for communicating their ideas with others.

Juniors and Cadettes can explore new STEM interests and tackle big challenges – all while having fun and earning their Girl Scout badges. To do this, Scouts must verify with their troop leader that they will approve the badges earned by participating in Play Like a Girl programs and events.

You will receive a final confirmation email with any additional information you need about 3-5 days prior to the event. Please also make sure to print, complete and sign all required waivers and forms – and bring them with you to this event.

Parking Details: The McWhorter building is #7 on the Campus Map. The parking garage is directly under the building. If you enter the garage off of Wedgewood Avenue, turn RIGHT into the McWhorter/Inman garage and then turn left for visitor parking. Enter the elevator lobby and take the elevator to the 1st floor (inside McWhorter Hall). Exit the elevator to the left and turn left at the first hall. Room #102 is on the left.

RSVP today!

Note: We will no longer offer free-to-register programs and events. Free events, particularly during the COVID-19 era, carry extremely high no-show risks, thereby reducing our impact and risking our relationships with partners and sponsors who invest time, talent and treasure to deliver high-quality programming for our girls. To also ensure our girls the best experience possible, tagalongs are not permitted to attend events unless otherwise noted. A tagalong is defined as any child (i.e. sibling, non-registered friend) that does not meet the age and/or grade level requirement for the scheduled program or event.
