Girls Who Code Club on Tuesdays at 3:30 p.m.

Megan McOsker and the Jesup Memorial Library are launching a Girls Who Code club at the Jesup every Tuesday from 3:30 to 5 p.m. The club starts meeting at the library on Tuesday, Dec. 5. This group is geared to girls in 6 through 8th grade but is also open to high school students as well. 

Currently at Mount Desert Island High School, there are about 17 boys for everyone one girl in a computer science class or robotics team. Girls Who Code clubs are designed to support and increase the number of women in computer science. Their curriculum is project-based and designed for students to use their coding skills to address real-life problems. The club will be led by McOsker, who works as a computer science teacher, robotics coach and gifted and talented specialist at MDIHS.
