Girl Power! Programming Workshop Details
This pilot workshop is an introductory programming course using Python which is a general purpose, high level programming language. The initial offering will be designed with a focus on middle school girls
 
Our organization's approach is to create a learning environment wherein the student is immediately immersed in the content through hands-on activities that are fun, exciting and engaging. By doing so, the student will instantly see how one line of code can sometimes make a huge impact in a program.
Our strategy is to gently expose students to software programming by making the learning experience simple and easy to follow.  Each student will have the confidence to consider learning more about software programming and applying what they have learned on to more advanced applications.
Students will be asked to design and develop projects using the concepts discussed in class.
Python Concepts:
  • printing
  • statements/expressions
  • user input
  • logic flow
  • looping
  • conditionals
  • variables
  • functions
  • testing/debugging
  • design/develop an interactive game
Student must be able to attend all 3 days!
