“I think everybody in this country should learn how to program a computer because it teaches you how to think.” – Steve Jobs, Apple cofounder As programming jobs in the US grow 12 percent faster than the market average, the percentage of women working in the computer science/technology field has declined. According to US News and World Report, 37 percent of computer science majors in 1984 were women, yet by 2014, that number had dropped to 18 percent. Under the direction of Lower School Computer Coordinator Laura Jamieson, girls will learn to code—or deepen their existing programming knowledge. This club will focus on helping participants develop their critical thinking and problem-solving abilities, as well as building teamwork and leadership skills. Please note: This club will start on January 24 as there is a MS ski trip on January 17. Also, this club will not meet on March 6 as GFS Lower School is closed this day.
