To all girls who code, families, and friends who support them,
We know this is a scary and uncertain time. Like many of you, we’re navigating a new normal: social distancing, working remotely, and continuing classwork at home. As you’re adjusting your daily life in response to COVID-19, we wanted to reach out with some guidance about the Summer Immersion Program (SIP) deadline, which closes tomorrow.
As we continue to monitor the situation, we are constantly considering the recommendations of public health experts, medical officials, and local and federal government so we can continue to bring this experience to girls.
More than 900 students have accepted their SIP offer letters, and we’re excited to send another round of acceptances in the coming days!
We are moving forward with SIP as planned, and will continue to explore all the ways we can provide you with a wonderful summer experience. Your health and safety are top priorities for all of us at Girls Who Code, and if there are any modifications or alterations to our summer programming, students will be alerted immediately.
We’re looking forward to bringing you a wonderful summer experience. Not just because that’s our goal every summer, but because as we’re seeing now more than ever: we need more girls in science and technology.
The world feels very different today than it did a few weeks ago, but we’re in this together. And we hope you’ll join us this summer for a once in a lifetime experience!
Stay tuned tomorrow for a special message from our CEO, Reshma Saujani.
In the meantime, stay safe, be healthy, and don’t forget to wipe down your screens! 🧼
