Girls Learning Code: Mother’s Day Edition
May 7, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pmPay-what-you-can donation
Celebrate Mother’s Day is a fun new way by bringing a special girl in your life to this workshop and learn to create a game together from scratch! Note: this workshop is BYOL so each parent or guardian/youth pair is required to bring one laptop on the day of the workshop as well as their own lunch.
From Checkers, to Super Mario Bros, to Angry Birds… we think games are awesome!
Girls Learning Code is excited to combine the power of play with basic design and programming skills for a full day, game-making workshop! This experience offers girls the opportunity to brainstorm modern day game ideas with others in a super fun environment, and learn basic design principles, character interaction techniques, as well as appropriate audio integration.
Using Scratch, a beginner level programming environment that encourages mathematical and computational skills, imagination will come to life throughout the day in a new and digitally engaging form. Girls will also be introduced to Scratch’s amazing online community sloganed: “Imagine, Program, Share,” where they will have the opportunity to upload their game for anyone on the web to download and play.
At the end of the workshop, each girl will also get a chance to practice their presentation skills and showcase their creation for everyone attending the workshop to experience and enjoy!
This is a beginner level workshop for girls 8-13 years old and their parent/guardian/aunt/older sibling.
