Girls Computer Programming Camps (Beginner), Arlington July 23-27, Yorktown HS

July 23 @ 9:00 am - July 27 @ 3:00 am UTC-5

$75 – $360

Boolean Girl introduces girls to computer science fundamentals at a young age through a series of unique projects and hands-on challenges. Our goal is to mix play and programming. Our classes are designed using a holistic approach to learning. A typical class begins with an introduction to programming by the class acting out stories they will later program on the computer. Students take turns writing a script using interactive tiles for the rest of the class to act out. These short stories are then reproduced in Scratch, a programming language developed by MIT on a Raspberry Pi device. Through these projects, girls learn more than computer science, they learn to work through project challenges in a collaborative method and ultimately present their final products to the group.

Camps this week are at a single location and include:

  • Half day camp, pair with First Serve Tennis to turn this in to a full day of camp
  • Full day Scratch programming for beginners . THIS CAMP
  • Full day Scratch programming for non-beginners (advanced camp)
