The Fred Hutch Girls Who Code club is a year-long after-school club for high school aged (grades 10-12) girls run by computational biology graduate students at Fred Hutch and UW. We meet weekly after school at the Fred Hutch campus.
We go on several field trips a year to expose the club members to different careers which use coding. In the past, we have taken tours of computational biology labs at Fred Hutch and met with female programmers and data scientists at Amazon, Facebook, Uber, Just Biotherapeutics, and Microsoft.
All our facilitators are junior researchers at the University of Washington and/or Fred Hutch who use computational approaches in their work and enjoy mentoring the next generation of women in science and technology!
