This introductory course uses Scratch, a drag-and-drop programming language, and Makey Makey to introduce girls to the fundamentals and creative power of computer science and physical computing. During week one, girls will spend their 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 they will dive into the world of physical computing with Makey Makey, learning about circuits and how to design devices that interact with the programs they code. In week two, girls will use their knowledge and skills developed in week one to design, build, and present a team project about a topic or issue that matters to them. At the end of the program each student will be able to take home their Scratch projects and their Makey Makey invention kits.
