Since the early 1980s, the percentage of women in computer science has dropped drastically. A big reason why is that boys get exposed to coding earlier, on average, than girls. Founded to inspire more young women to code and to connect girls in Miami who share a love for coding, CodeArt uses art-based coding projects to inspire girls in grades 4-12 to try coding and to show them how creative computer science can be. With the majority of CodeArt’s programs being taught by female instructors, girls see firsthand that coding is not just a “guy’s thing,” while they get an early introduction to computer science.
The Inspire305 grant is being used to help expand the number of CodeArt’s after school CodeHER clubs. For more information on Code/Art visit them here.
Mind&Melody seeks to re-engage static minds through the transformative effects of music. Mind&Melody provides music enrichment programming to long-term healthcare facility residents with Alzheimer’s.

The Inspire305 grant is being used to expand the delivery of intergenerational musical experiences to individuals with Alzheimer’s in Miami-Dade County. For more information on Mind&Melody visit them here.
