Black Girls Code, a San Francisco nonprofit that trains African-American girls in the STEM fields, launched a new outpost in D.C. earlier this month.
The organization, which is building up a volunteer team in the District, has already planned a summer camp program, scheduled for the last week of July.
Thirty to 40 students are slated to join the $150 courses, which will take place at Harmony DC Public Charter Schools, Bryant said.

Black Girls Code is in the process of opening up an East Coast office, with a program director to be posted either in New York and D.C. by the end of the summer.
The organization has nine chapters, including the up-and-coming branches in D.C. and Raleigh, N.C. It’s also running pilot programs in Miami and Dallas, with full chapters expected to launch there by 2016.
