NGCP Program Directory Highlight: Girls Who Code Summer Immersion Program

The NGCP Program Directory lists organizations and programs that focus on motivating girls to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The purpose of this Directory is to help organizations and individuals network, share resources, and collaborate on STEM-related projects for girls.

The Directory contains program descriptions, resources available within each organization, program and/or organization needs, and contact information. This month, we highlight the Girls Who Code Summer Immersion Program.
