Why Girls Code the World?

Girls Code the World is unique in its philsophy surrounding role models and its method of developing curriculum.


We believe in the value of providing active role models that feel attainable and relatable, which means connecting them with passionate females of all ages.

We connect these girls with high school and college girls who are passionate about STEM and are trained to be a supportive resource for your child.

The mentors provide academic advice, college tips, information about summer programs or other extracurricular activities, and they act a tangible role model in your daughter’s life.


We create specialized curriculum for specific schools by working with their STEM teachers and collaborating on lesson plans that build off of the previous year and prepare girls for the upcoming year.

In the past we have collaborated with teachers at the Christina Seix Academy to model after their curriculum, but in the future we will be creating curriculum that reflects the curriculum of other school districts in the Bucks County of PA and Mercer County of NJ.

An individual does not go from a high school student to an established professor overnight. It is important to show that this journey is not linear and will most likely involve overcoming aspects of one’s background and other struggles in order to reach certain goals.
