Emerging Technology For All

 

For the past 5 years, GirlsComputingLeague has been a leader in bringing emerging technology to the students who will shape its future and shift the balance of diversity in the technology workplace. We aim to empower students in our programs to be leaders and changemakers in their communities through hands-on learning and instilling confidence and community.

What We Do

Educate, Empower, Inspire, Change

AInnovation Summit

As the first AI Conference for high school students, the AInnovation Summit has worked to educate the next generation of technologists, innovators, and leaders for the past four years. We make AI accessible in an exciting project-based, expert-led environment 

Chapters

We’re currently in over 15 states across the US. Join or start a chapter to use GirlsComputingLeague’s experiences and resources to make a lasting impact on your local community.

1000 Schools Project

Spurred by the inequities in education exacerbated by the COVID-19 crisis, our moonshot is to support 1000 low-income educational centers by the end of 2021 with technology-related resources such as computers, internet access, and a STEAM education.

GCL Scholars

In line with our mission for social justice and equity, we’re empowering leaders at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) to teach emerging technology in their local communities. GCL will be pioneering a new discussion-based method of asking critical questions that will enable these future leaders to shape the future of technology.

Together We Make An Impact

After participating in our numerous programs, students, teachers, industry experts, and families feel confident in their abilities and optimistic about the future of technology.

Talking to the next generation of AI technologists at the GCL AI Summit

It was exciting to get a chance to talk to the next generation of AI technologists at the Girls Computing League AI Summit. Having a serious discussion with these students about ethical AI and how to use AI for good was extremely rewarding.

From Budget Cuts to a Funded Computer Science Program

This year, cuts forced us to eliminate the science and computer classes, but thanks to this generous grant from [Girls Computing League], we will be able to continue inspiring students to explore hands-on science. The grant will allow us to create an after-school student robotics club.

GCL Brought Us the Resources We Needed

I wanted to again thank you for donation to Crestwood Elementary School to support our efforts to increase our students’ experiences in coding and robotics.  We have ordered the robots and are going to start a before school club after winter break.  I will also be using the robots in my instruction at all grade levels.  The students are really excited and can’t wait to start programming.
