App Camp is Coming to Minneapolis! Learn How You Can Support Gender Diversity in STEM

App Camp for Girls is a one-week summer day program where girls, transgender & gender non-conforming youth can put their creative powers to work designing and building native iOS apps using Xcode and Swift. They learn about the business of software while being inspired by role models currently working in the tech industry. At the end of the week, they pitch their apps to a panel of local investors to get positive and encouraging feedback on all their hard work.

The inaugural season of App Camp for Girls took place in Summer 2013 in Portland, Oregon. In 2018, we will hold sessions in Portland, Seattle, Chicago, and for the first time ever, Minneapolis! App Camp has worked with over 200 aspiring developers and over 60 mentor volunteers in over the last five summers!

At this session, you'll hear more about App Camp and the volunteer opportunities we have available at our first Minneapolis camp this summer, taking place August 6-10. And if you have children entering the 8th and 9th grades next fall, find out more about enrolling them in App Camp!
