Curriculum Consultant & Copy Editor
Girls Who Code is searching for a part-time curriculum consultant and copy editor to help build out and refine curriculum for our brand new Campus program. Campus offers beginner and advanced courses for middle and high school girls -- in a condensed 2-week timeline for busy summer schedules. In our Campus programs, girls connect coding to their interests, build bravery and confidence, learn more about careers and women in tech, and join a supportive sisterhood of girls who code all across the US. Our programs are hosted at secondary schools and universities in select markets during the summer. In Summer 2018 Campus is offering four courses:
iPhone App Development (ages 13-18) with instruction in Swift & XCode
Wearable Tech & Fashion Design (ages 13-18) with instruction in LilyPad Arduino & C
Introduction to Computer Science (ages 10-14) with instruction in Scratch & Makey Makey
The curriculum consultant will be responsible for supporting the Director of Education in designing and deploying Campus curriculum and teacher training materials. Projects include copy-editing student and teacher-facing materials for each of the four curriculums, researching and designing short team building and sisterhood activities, using templates to create or design slides, and uploading curriculum materials to our internal curriculum platform, HQ.
