About the K-12 Engineering Academies 

The Engineering Academies offer students of all ages a wide variety of interesting and challenging programs. Our courses challenge our youth to become critical-thinking problem solvers, appreciate STEM, and explore the engineering design process. Since 2006, the Outreach team develops and offers unique opportunities for students to have fun while solving real-world engineering problems.

Girls Who Code (GWC) is a national organization launched in 2012 as a nonprofit organization working to inspire, educate, and equip girls with computing skills to pursue 21st century opportunities. The aim is to close the gender gap in the technology and engineering sectors by offering computer science education and tech industry exposure to 6th – 12th grade girls throughout the academic year. The organization offers a scalable approach to learning computer science and includes forty curriculum hours paired with project based, group learning, along with exposure to various industries through outings.

Congratulations to the GIrls Who Code 2016 Graduates

Coming in Fall 2016: The OPUS College of Engineering Outreach will be offering two levels of Girls Who Code:  Level 1 for beginning Coders and Level 2 for "Graduates" (girls who have completed Level1).  Meetings are held every Tuesday from 6pm-8pm in Engineering Hall.  Watch for more information in August.
