Inspiring Girls to Code!

About the Company:

Code/Art's mission is to increase the number of girls studying computer science by delighting and inspiring them with the creative possibilities of computer programming. We use art to inspire girls in grades 4-12 to code! We hold workshops where we teach students how to write computer programs to generate art and hold an annual event, Code/Art Miami, where student computer-generated art is displayed and awards are given for the top coded art submissions.
