Boolean Girl Coding Club at G W Carver Intermediate School

November 1, 2018 @ 7:15 am - January 24, 2019 @ 8:15 am UTC-5

$25

This club meets on the following Thursdays with Mrs. Seitz in the media center: November 8th, 15th, 29th, December 6th, 13th, and January 10th, 17th and 24th at 7:15 am.

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.
