Girl Code @Stanford, is a summer program for rising high school seniors in the San Francisco Bay Area. Over the course of two weeks, students will get to experience computer science firsthand through an introduction to computer programming, tours of local tech companies and research labs, and visits from leading academics and industry professionals. Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, the program is available completely free-of-charge to all students.

They firmly believe that everyone, regardless of background, can thrive as a computer scientist. They start off each summer assuming absolutely no prior programming experience, and by the time the program is done, students are routinely creating their own games and custom animations as final projects.

They are currently soliciting nominations for students to attend this year's offering of Girl Code. They are looking for current high-school juniors with strong math and science skills, but with no prior programming experience. They will be giving preference to students from those groups who are the most underrepresented in information technology: women, African Americans, Latinas/Latinos, and Native Americans.
