Girl Powered Programming starts 12th May!
Don’t miss out on this great opportunity for girls to explore their digital creativity through programming! There are only a couple of spots left in this great course starting today, 12 May.
Follow in the footsteps of great coders such as Ada Lovelace, Grace Hopper, and the female programmers of today in this girl-focused course. Students will use their creativity to code original mini-games using Scratch, a visual computer programming language. Students will learn how to create virtual pet games and multi-level adventure games, they will then put their skills to the test as they create their original mini-games. We will explore character creation, game mechanics, and the importance of Open Source game development.
This great course is taken by Jess Weichler, a media arts educator at the Makerbox who has been creating digital worlds through game design since childhood.
