Girls Who Code

My name is Emma Groves Baldacci and I am the Regional Partnership Coordinator for Connecticut at Girls Who Code, the national non-profit working to close the gender gap in technology. I am hoping to connect with you regarding our Summer Immersion Programs at Synchrony Financial in Stamford for current 10th and 11th grade girls.

Our FREE 7-week Summer Immersion Program teaches 10th–11th grade students (rising juniors or seniors) the computer science skills they need to make an impact in their community while preparing for a career in tech. In the Summer Immersion Program, girls will learn about:

  • CAREERS — They’ll meet inspiring female role models in the field and get an inside look at the tech world through guest speakers, workshops, fun field trips and more! Their summer will be spent in classrooms hosted at the world’s top companies, like Twitter, Amazon, AT&T, Warner Brothers, and Microsoft.
  • SKILLS AND IMPACT — They’ll learn to code through hands on real-world projects in art and storytelling, robotics, video games, websites, apps, and more. By the end of the summer, they’ll also create a final project that solves a real-world problem they care about -- combining their new coding skills with their passions to change the world!
  • SISTERHOOD — As essential members of our Girls Who Code sisterhood, they’ll learn in a supportive, all-female environment and make lifelong friendships that encourage them to be brave, take risks, and stand up for what matters to them!

Applications for summer 2019 are now open!

Students can apply here.

The early deadline is February 15 and the application closes on March 15.

Greetings from Fordham!

I wanted to let you and your guidance team know about some great new summer programs Fordham is offering for rising high school juniors and seniors. Could you please give us a mention in your parent newsletter? Here is some sample copy for your convenience:

As you make your plans for this summer, I wanted to make you aware of a few programs that Fordham University offers for rising high school juniors and seniors. Fordham's Pre-College program allows rising seniors to take college courses in a wide range of subjects and earn transferable college credits. There are also non-credit summer institutes in real estate development and business specially designed for high school students. I encourage you to explore these opportunities, which can help your students stand out in their college applications.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. Thank you very much!

Warm regards,
Tara Czechowski

Cyber Math Academy

Early bird discounts for CyberMath Academy's summer camps end on April 1st. Interested students can apply here. Our camps are open to students in grades 4-12.

Research shows the importance of summer learning:

"On average, students lose approximately 2.6 months of learning in math over the summer — and teachers have to give up weeks of class time, or more, to make up for that loss." (link) "High-quality summer enrichment programs can help schools address summer learning loss. The Afterschool Alliance (2010) describes well-designed summer learning programs as those that increase achievement, enhance motivation for and engagement in learning, and develop and nurture new skills and talents." (link)

Two Locations in July 2019:

  • Harvard Law School, Wasserstein Hall, 1585 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, MA 02138.
