Code/Art Fest

Code/Art Fest is an Annual Coding Conference for Girls, Parents, Educators and Supporters of STEAM Education. The daylong event includes a coded art exhibition, hands-on STEAM activities, cool coding workshops, inspirational women-in-tech talks, and an awards ceremony to recognize the winners of our all-girls coding competition as well as the teachers inspiring those girls to code.

Population(s) Served
Women and girls
Children and youth

CodeHER clubs are weekly coding clubs where girls learn 3D modeling, game design, mobile apps, website design, and code their own art pieces! These clubs serve as a fun and creative introduction to coding for girls in grades 3rd-12th, with CodeHER Jr. serving 3rd-5th, and CodeHER serving middle and high school students.

Population(s) Served
Women and girls
Children and youth

Our Intro to Creative Coding Professional Development (PD) workshop provides art, CTE and CS teachers with training, curriculum, and post-training support to lead Code/Art’s four introductory code-based art lessons in the classroom! Each easy-to-teach lesson is geared toward expanding students’ creativity and teaching them computing skills. No previous computer programming experience is needed for teachers.

Population(s) Served
Women and girls
Children and youth

Code/Art’s creative coding competitions use art as a vehicle to spark interest in coding, while also breaking preconceived notions about what a computer programmer looks like and what interests them. Code/Art runs several annual coding competitions for girls in grades 3-12, the biggest of which is its CodeYourSelf competition.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
