MIT CodeIt empowers middle school girl and nonbinary students and builds their self-confidence as problem solvers.
Our team of dedicated MIT students serves as mentors and role models for our students
as we introduce them to computer science.
We learn and grow by pushing our limits as problem solvers. We might not know all the answers right now, but we have the resources to figure them out!
Those who never stop asking questions never stop learning. We value the art of exploring and seeking answers to our own questions.
Our most valuable resource is each other. By working together and answering each other's questions, we can build bigger and better things.
Who: Female and nonbinary students in grades 6 to 8 with little to no programming experience.
When: Sundays (10-2PM ET) from March 12 to April 23, no class on March 26 for spring break
What: Our in-person program runs over 6 weeks, with 1 session hosted per week and a final project showcase at the conclusion of the program on April 23. During the first four weeks, students will learn basic programming concepts by completing Scratch codelabs. During the last two weeks, students will create their very own Scratch final projects and present them at the project showcase.
Where: After two years of virtual programming due to COVID-19, CodeIt will be hosting an in-person program on MIT's campus in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
