At Touro, Girls Do Code

Ariella Feuchtwanger had never tried computer programming before she enrolled at Touro’s Lander College of Arts and Sciences in Flatbush. This year, the Touro College senior is spending her Sundays teaching high school girls how to code.

Ariella is a facilitator in Touro’s Girls Who Code program, a year-long club that teaches computer coding to high school girls in order to spark their interest in technology careers. The program currently enrolls 40 students from a dozen different Bais Yaakov high schools in New York. Girls Who Code is a national nonprofit working to close the gender gap in technology.
