Made by Girls

Made by Girls is a program at Digital Media Academy dedicated to empowering girls. Our courses provide a safe learning environment designed to increase confidence in coding and computer science.

Classes are led by female mentors dedicated to serving as role models and building a supportive community for girl learners. We believe we can make a difference in helping girls realize their potential and encourage them to express their creativity every step of the way.

Thanks for Attending!

On Saturday, December 5th, brilliant woman working in animation, virtual reality, tech education, design and mapping converged with girls from throughout the Bay area at The Girls’ Middle School in Palo Alto, Calif. to share how they bring their personality and passion to their work in technology.



Being a role model to me means being me and showing them that there’s not one type of girl who codes.

We learn new things together and got the chance to help each other.

It was WONDERFUL, I think it made me feel more comfortable in the environment.

I like that I can learn as much as I’d learn in a class in school in one week instead of one year.
