SciGirls Code is a two-year project (2016-2018) supporting 16 STEM outreach programs in providing elementary/middle school girls with computational thinking (CT) in an extended learning environment setting. In this proposal, case analyses of six girls are presented to examine their interests in and identities toward computer sciences (CS). Findings reveal increased confidence and interest in CS activities, new appreciation for coding, the importance of teamwork and girls’ understanding of gendered identities in CS careers.
