Concord Girls Who Code is a club program for the national Girls Who Code organization,
hosted by Concord Public Library, in Massachusetts,
where young girls take on obstacles of coding to defy gender barriers, and help the face of computer science.
Each year we make life-changing projects to help the environment and the people we live with. We all work together, as a club, and a group, to make these websites and apps that we are proud of. Oh, and We Code Like Girls, So Try To Keep Up! - Concord Girls Who Code #GirlPower
