Montclar Learning Center (MLC) started a Girls Who Code club this fall as part of the national movement Girls Who Code to close the gender gap in technology. MLC offers a free coding classes to girls in 6th to 12th grade, allowing girls to create a group of supportive peers and and collaborate on a coding project that impacts their community.

There are 14 girls are in the program this fall, in two groups on Monday and Fridays at 4-6 p.m. The girls learn to code and participate in bonding/fun activities, while working in a group.

One group is creating a website (that will include a video and a game using code that they are building themselves) on healthy eating habits. The other group is working a video to encourage young girls in pursuing interest in STEM.

Guest speakers, including one female engineer from Alcatel, one engineer from Google and Mountainside Hospital Robotics Surgery Department will come and speak to the girls about their use of technology in the medical field.

MLC organizes the class and invite guests speakers, provides each girl a laptop and offers a supportive and friendly environment. Interested students should email us at [email protected]

Montclair is relatively heterogenous and, it could fairly be said, takes pride in its diversity. Has Montclair named a street or school after Dr. King? Why is that?
