Girls Who Code Seeking To Boost Cause With Old Technology

Girls Who Code was founded in 2012 to help encourage girls to learn and use coding skills.  Through club and immersion programs the organization provides both education in computer science skills and exposure to tech companies to see firsthand what those jobs might involve.

Earlier today it was announced that the organization has partnered with Viking Children’s Books to develop a line of books to support the mission of Girls Who Code.  The books will include fiction and nonfiction, and focus on girls in the middle grades (presumably 4th-8th, or roughly 10-15 years old).  The first works should be available in 2017.

No word as to whether some form of e-book editions of these books would be produced.
