BREAKING NEWS: Brown CS is proud to report that Louisa has just been declared a Kode with Karlie Scholarship winner. Congratulations, Louisa! Profiles of the 2015 scholars are available here.
"Most people," says 14-year-old Louisa Bay, "think coding is boring and for boys. I know they're wrong. By winning the Kode with Karlie Scholarship, I will have the tools I need to change the world."
Few things are more satisfying for the Brown CS family than seeing graduates of the Artemis Project (our free, five-week summer day camp for rising 9th-grade girls in the Providence area who are interested in learning about science and technology) continue what we hope will become a lifelong pursuit of computer science.
After an "awesome" experience with Artemis, Louisa was inspired to start a Coding Club in her high school, but resources have been scarce. To help turn that around, she's competing for the Kode with Karlie Scholarship, which gives 20 girls across the country free tuition to Flatiron Pre-College Academy's Introduction to Software Engineering course. (You can watch her 90-second video application here.)
Brown CS wishes her all the best. Good luck, Louisa!
