Summer Camp 2019 


HowGirlsCode is proud to partner with the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) to offer:

Mind, Body & Coding

Girls will challenge their minds through coding and robotics and will nurture their bodies and well-being through yoga, meditation, and self-empowerment exercises. Each day girls will enjoy programming classes, hands-on robotics sessions, yoga instruction, and engaging guest speakers while on the UMBC campus.
