Our Purpose

MIT CodeIt empowers middle school girls and builds their self-confidence as problem solvers.
Our team of dedicated MIT students serves as mentors and role models for our girls
as we introduce them to computer science.

Our Values



We learn and grow by pushing our limits as problem solvers. We might not know all the answers right now, but we have the resources to figure them out!



Those who never stop asking questions never stop learning. We value the art of exploring and seeking answers to our own questions.



Our most valuable resource is each other. By working together and answering each other's questions, we can build bigger and better things.
