>_ OUR MISSION

GirlsCodeToo is a Swiss-based non-profit organisation, founded by a motivated team of industry professionals, professors, students, and parents. We support and encourage girls to discover coding and explore a career in tech.

We believe that girls are curious, capable, and creative. Every girl deserves to take part in creating technology that is shaping our world. We provide a nurturing, safe, and supportive environment where girls can explore different opportunities in the digital world by learning directly from inspiring university students and industry professionals. 

We work to encourage sparks of talent and curiosity by introducing girls to software tools, different coding languages and processes that are used to build apps, games, websites, and robots. At the end of each course, the girls come out of class with a finalized project that they can use and re-use on their laptop or computer. Each course is designed with clear learning objectives that support the girls’ understanding of each concept.

>_ OUR GOAL

At GirlsCodeToo our goal is to close the gender gap in  the tech industry and engineering universities and to empower girls to fulfill their potential with an understanding of our digital world.

GirlsCodeToo collaborates with partner organizations and universities across Switzerland to increase the number of girls applying for STEM-related education programmes and technical apprenticeships. 

We provide guidance and support to girls in the following formats:

  • Introductory coding workshops 
  • In-depth workshops in specific coding languages or technologies 
  • Workshops to boost confidence and interpersonal skills
  • Summer camps
  • Inspiring  #TechTuesday talks by industry professionals

With the help of our partners, we provide girls the necessary skills to become instrumental in shaping the digital future.

DIGITAL DISCOVERY

Girls are invited to ‘Get Inspired with Tech!’ in a series of workshops focused on various technology topics.

These sessions are geared towards girls aged 8-18 with no prior experience. The idea is to give girls valuable insights on how software (apps, games, websites etc.) and hardware (phones, laptops, robots etc.) works and how is it developed. 

TECHNOLOGY WORKSHOPS

These workshops are the next step in the girls’ tech journey – for those who wish to further explore and refine their tech skills. The workshops are taught by experienced teachers selected and trained by GirlsCodeToo.
