Boolean Girl Coding Club at Rich Acres Elementary Spring 2019

March 11 @ 3:00 pm - April 29 @ 3:50 pm UTC-5

Free

This club meets Mondays from 3-3:50 at Rich Acres Elementary as follows:  March 11, March 18, April 1, 8,15, 29

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.
