Chapter Leader: Sofia Tomov
Description: Our ProjectCSGIRLS Knoxville chapter hosts computer science workshops intended to spark middle school girls' interest in computer science and empower them to solve challenging problems. Located in Knoxville, Tennessee, with workshops held at the University of Tennessee, they teach girls how to code basic games in Python, learn about cybersecurity by cracking secret codes, and how they can manipulate pixel values to create unique photo filters.
Chapter Leader: Klara Proffen
Description: Our ProjectCSGIRLS Oak Ridge chapter works closely with Oak Ridge Computer Science Girls to bring coding and technology classes to middle school girls. Located in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, they teach computer science classes, recruit high school girls to volunteer at ORCSGirls events, and promote the ProjectCSGIRLS competition in local middle schools. This chapter has hosted, and continues to host, several events throughout the year to teach middle school girls how to program virtual reality (VR) simulations and games.
Chapter Leader: JayLynn Cross
Description: Our ProjectCSGIRLS Tulsa chapter hosts computer science workshops to teach middle school girls how to code in different languages, learn how to work on cyber security problems, and find problems to address with computer science skills. Located in Tulsa, Oklahoma, they host montly workshops in a public library or school in the Tulsa area.
Chapter Leader: Soumya Mishra
Description: Our ProjectCSGIRLS Millburn chapter hosts a hackathon for middle school girls and a series of workshops at local libraries that focus on the applications of computer science. It will showcase the community of girls in computer science to middle school girls, proving that coding is for everyone. We plan on having a hackathon with prizes and categories including technology, humor, art, and innovation.
Chapter Leader: Wamika Bansal
Description: Our ProjectCSGIRLS New Delhi chapter hosts workshops at schools around the city of New Delhi to introduce middle school girls to computer science. They use a combination of teaching basic programming languages and concepts (Scratch, C++, etc.) with addressing relevant social issues like education and public safety.
Chapter Leader: Yamini Mathur
Description: Our ProjectCSGIRLS Gurgaon chapter hosts workshops at schools around the city of Gurgaon to introduce middle school girls to computer science. Their workshops focus on helping middle school girls identify a social issue of relevance to their community, and then use computer science to address that issue. For example, they recently hosted a workshop on "Programming for Global Health" to teach girls how to use Python for global health projects.
Chapter Leader: Shubhanshi Gaudani
Chapter Description: Our ProjectCSGIRLS Rajkot chapter conducts workshops to create a flare of excitement about CS, among girls, given the lack of CS learning opportunities in Rajkot as well as the rising gender gap. Our chapter intends to work for "Innovating for good" so that after every girl is equipped with the required coding knowledge she can take up an individual/team project, about a problem she faces in the local community and solve it using technology. They conduct workshops, invite female role models in STEM to give talks and share their experiences, and hold community social events to foster a community of girls in CS.
Chapter Leaders: Cindy Fang, Kasthuri Ravishanker, Cindy Wang, Jenny Chen
Description: Our ProjectCSGIRLS Toronto chapter is run by 4 high school girls in Victoria Park CI, ranging from grades 11 to 12. Their events focus on teaching HTML/CSS at Victoria Park Collegiate Institute to local middle school girls, and each workshop is 3 hours long. Our chapter strives to introduce girls to programming and the many possibilities that it brings, as well as inspire passion and interest for coding.
Chapter Leader: Adanna Ononiwu
Description: Nigeria is a country where many young girls are interested in computer science and technology, but are unable to properly access resources to become innovators. The ProjectCSGIRLS Nigeria chapter (InspireIT) teaches girls in Nigeria how to use technology to address social problems in their communities, as well as encourages them to pursue careers in STEM. Our chapters organize events and competitions for young girls in primary and secondary schools and is starting a mobile app competition for girls in Nigeria.
Chapter Leader: Ons Kharrat
Chapter Description: Our ProjectCSGIRLS Tunisia chapter runs coding classes, inspiration events, hackathons and mini-conferences to empower Tunisian girls to become successful tech leaders and puruse higher education in STEM. This chapter is co-located with the First Skills Club association, a Tunisian non-profit organization that teaches kids to learn and communicate in English via STEM education.
