BENEFITING: SCIENCE CLUB FOR GIRLS INC
Bocoup is partnering with the Science Club for Girls to teach computer programming and literacy skills to middle and high school aged girls in the greater Boston area. Our goal is to empower the girls to pursue self-directed exploration of programming skills and opportunities in a creative and safe environment.
While our programs have generated interest and enthusiasm from the students, they are limited by their lack of access to modern tools. You can help create and sustain successful programs by contributing to our fund for Science Club for Girls' computer lab. Modern and reliable laptops will allow us to focus on teaching these girls all the most exciting parts of computer programming. Your donation will also make it much easier for Science Club for Girls to create new programs and expose even more girls to computer programming!
Science Club for Girls has provided free science and engineering programming to K-12 girls in the greater Boston area since 1994. Their mission is to increase the self-confidence and literacy in STEM of K-12th grade girls belonging to groups that are underrepresented in these fields, through programs that include hands-on learning, mentoring, and leadership opportunities. scienceclubforgirls.org
