Coding for Girls: RHS Seniors start educational classes for youth

April 11, 2018

Coding for Girls is an organization aimed at encouraging girls' interest in technology with the belief that all should have an equal opportunity to explore technology as a future hobby or career. The program is now in three elementary schools, teaching about 25 students and Christiansen and Payette have even hired six more teachers to help out.

Thomas Reinartz, a computer science teacher at RHS, had both Christiansen and Payette in one of his classes. He said he recalls listening to the two of them talk about teaching girls how to code. It eventually got off the ground and he was asked to be a guest speaker. That's when he realized what they had started.
