    Pair program and collaborate with other teens learning to code.

     

    High school girls (grades 9-12) will have the unique opportunity to explore the digital humanities at New-York Historical Society. Participants will have behind-the-scenes access to our Center for Women’s History where they will meet with curators and graduate fellows, and influential women in the technology field as well as conduct research on the historical figures and events that continue to impact young women today.

    Learn coding (including HTML, CSS, and JavaScript) to design and build your own digital projects—including games, apps, and websites.

    Get mentored by a wide range of women leaders in technology, and learn about career options!

    Participants will then share their scholarship through dynamic digital projects by learning basic HTML and CSS code to create retro websites to be hosted by New-York Historical Society. Apply for our Summer and Fall programs today!

    For NYC high school students, grades 9–12 who self-identify as women.
