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.

Adventures & Teen Camps
An empowering curriculum and student-led projects puts girls in charge. Classes conclude with a final project in which girls can see the results of their hard work.
Girls thrive in collaborative environments. Our instructors balance lectures with engaging demos, activities and opportunities for shared experiences with peers.
Instructors are enthusiastic and encouraging about student ideas and are conscientious of girls’ need to be heard. Many of our instructors are women who are pursuing careers in STEM topics and want to inspire a new generation of women in STEM.
Our exclusive classes for girls build a community in the classroom and are led by our inspiring female instructors. Girls are also always welcome in our co-ed classes, where we continue to foster an environment of inclusion and sensitivity.
