Girls Who Code

Last year, at Broomfield High School there was a club called Girls Who Code.

The club was run by Maddison Tate, Adriana Orejel Torres, Aster Defrancesco, Katy Garamfel, and Ash Williams, who had also all helped to create the club along with Ms. Dykstra.

“Ms. Dykstra came and told us about the organization. She knew we were heavily interested in women in STEM and had a rough introduction to the engineering club,” said Katy Garamfel (‘26).

“There were only three girls in the engineering club when I joined,” said Garamfel. Now, the engineering club has way more than three girls.

This difference led the five to create the club within BrHS. Ash Williams said, “We would meet during common lunch on Tuesdays and eat lunch together and use different coding websites and programs to code and have fun.”

This club is no longer offered at BrHS due to the graduation of senior members, lack of time to continue the club, and loss of members.

However, this club isn’t just done through BrHS, it can be found everywhere. This club doesn’t have to be done in person, people who are interested can also join online through their website.

 

Girls Who Code has about 580,000 females and non-binary individuals coding. The organization values bravery, sisterhood, activism, diversity, equity, and inclusion.

They have many different ways to get involved. They offer clubs, college and career programs, and summer programs. To view how to get involved, click here.

There is also an opportunity to begin a club through the website of Girls Who Code. The website also has the option to join a club nearby.
