In this introductory course you will use Scratch, a drag-and-drop programming language, to learn the fundamentals and creative power of computer science. In the first week of the course you will spend your mornings working on projects that are designed to teach the Girls Who Code Core4 Programming Concepts (loops, variables, conditionals, and functions) which are used to build everything from websites to apps and robots. In the afternoons you will dive into the world of physical computing with Makey Makey, learning about circuits and designing devices that interact with the programs you programmed earlier that day. In week two, you and your team members will take the knowledge and skills you gained the first week to design, build, and present a project about a topic or issue that matters to you. Every day, you will learn about one of the numerous female role models in the field of technology. By the end of the program you will have built your technical skills, forged new friendships, and recognized that you are part of a large sisterhood of girls in tech.
