Helping girls code in order to dominate STEM fields.

 

Our Mission

Our goal is to teach young girls how to code so they can be set up for success and dominate STEM fields.

 

Who We Are

SOWcoders USA is a chapter of the international organization Society of Women coders. It is a chapter founded in the US that is run by head founder, Priya Sinha, and assistant founder, Alyssa Puskarz. The goal of this chapter is to help girls in developing areas of the US explore STEM fields and learn basic coding. We fundraise for those who are under-resourced and hope to make our community a better place!

Reinforcing our Commitment

With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to find new strategies for dealing with this challenge. Our first project became Secret Secret, where students were able to send thoughtful and caring messages to each other. It was a school-wide initiative and we raised around $250+!

 

Teaching Coding

When SOWcoders USA was first established, we wanted to teach girls coding and help them with their education. Knowing that we didn't know a lot about coding, it became our mission to take college classes and learn more about it so we can teach others who don't have those classes at their school offered to them. Now, we are teaching girls HTML/CSS and they will be making a website based on an issue they find interesting in society!

Hartford, CT

Hartford has one of the largest proportions of people with less than a high school diploma (33.2%). Hartford’s population is mainly made up of Black, Hispanic, or Latino people. Hartford has started implementing STEM/STEAM schools in their district however most families don’t have the money to send them off to these schools. They could surely use our help by getting young women involved and offering free coding classes in public schools.

How we can help

We plan to locate a specific school in Hartford and teach coding lessons to young girls for free. Hopefully, this can be done in person with the help of our club members and volunteers as direct by the founders.
