CoderChicks Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit with a goal to empower more girls to pursue careers in the STEM field. Right now, only 18% of computer science majors are women, and we need to change that. Currently based in Orlando, we have coding workshops, online coding tutorials and our blog where we update our CoderChicks about tech opportunities. We have taught over 300 girls how to code over the past year and a half, free of charge. Please navigate through our page to learn more about us!
