The Binghamton University Chapter
Our Mission is Twofold: (1) Aid the development of young female students in building character and coding skills as they learn, plan, build and celebrate together to create a project they care about. (2) Promote a professional attitude among its teaching and managing board members, and facilitate a mutual understanding and acceptance to coding principles, thereby promoting the representation of females in STEM.
