In 2016 Fredericksburg All Ages started a community affiliate of the national non-profit organization Girls Who Code, which seeks to inspire, educate, and equip girls with the computing skills to pursue 21st century opportunities. The Girls Who Code club met in FAA's digital arts and media lab, Studio 15.
We plan to restart the club in the winter of 2017. Interested in finding out more? Fill out the form below and we'll let you know as soon as registration is live.
