Gryte Satas Creates Opportunities For Girls To Code


Described as “a role model” by her new colleagues at Providence, Rhode Island’s Rochambeau Library, Gryte Satas, a PhD candidate at Brown University’s Department of Computer Science, has just made a unique contribution to her community. She’s leading a new Girls Who Code Club, designed to provide young women with computer science and programming skills, as well as opportunities to learn about everything from cryptography to artificial intelligence to developing mobile applications.

The club’s mission is inspiration and education, equipping girls with the skills to pursue 21st-century opportunities. Believed to be the only public club of its kind in the state, it’s open to any girl from grades six to twelve.The entire story is available at Providence Business News.
