Spartan Girls Who Code

A signature MSU WIE & CSE Outreach Program, Spartan Girls Who Code (SGWC) aims to inspire and empower girls to create technology for the benefit of all. Run by students for students, MSU student-mentors guide 6th- through 12th-grade student-participants through a fun, engaging and empowering learning experience.

SGWC is a program for everyone — everyone can learn to code!

Technology Requirements

In-person meetings does not have any technology requirements.

Remote meetings require use of a device with at least the capability of a Chromebook connected to the internet. Although not required, we recommend the device is equipped with a webcam and microphone to permit full engagement with mentors and other participants.

Course software will run best in Chrome, but is compatible with other web browsers. The most recent version of Zoom should be used.
