what is
Below you will find a list of all upcoming PyGirls courses. Please log in with your account to register for one of the courses.

The PyGirls initiative gives girls aged 12 – 18 the opportunity to explore the world of programming in a playful way, and even more important in a safe environment with other girls. They learn Python, one of the most powerful programming languages, and receive a diploma after each year of lessons.

During the course we show them inspirational women in science, and they will get to learn the #1 programming language Python.

What’s in it for the PyGirls?

PyGirls is the place for you because PyGirls introduces you to the world of the #1 programming language, Python. Not only will you find out that the world's most popular websites and apps like Google, Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and Snapchat only work because of Python. But there’s more: As a programming language, Python is both simple and effective, making it a great choice for beginners. What you learn with us will be useful to you for years to come!

Ok, that might be true, but why should you choose our sessions? Well, because we start every PyGirls session with an inspiring woman in tech and how she got there. But most importantly, you will get to know Python in a safe environment, with other girls, and in a fun a playful way.

Who knows? You might make friends for life!


For centuries, women have made important contributions to the sciences, but in many cases, it took far too long for their discoveries to be recognized — if acknowledged at all.

All too often, books and academic courses that explore the history of science neglect the remarkable, groundbreaking women who changed the world.

We would like to change that by highlighting several inspirational women in science:


We are a team of BCG volunteers and university students who are excited about giving girls the opportunity to learn how to code and get excited about science and technology
