Tech Scholars at the New York Historical Society

Learn to code in a supportive, all-girl environment with Tech Scholars at the New York Historical Society. Explore how women across the spectrum of race, class, and sexuality exercised power and effected change. Be a digital changemaker and create your own projects—including games, apps, and websites—to share powerful stories about women in history. Students will:

  • Research historical figures and events that continue to impact young people today.
  • Pair program and collaborate with other teens learning to code.
  • Learn coding (including HTML, CSS, and JavaScript) to design and build their own digital projects—including games, apps, and websites.
  • Get mentored by a wide range of women leaders in technology, and learn about career options.

Open to NYC high school students in grades 9-12 who self-identify as women. These programs are offered on a pay-what-you-want basis. New York Historical Society is committed to making its programs accessible to all girls.
