Black Girls Code - BlackGirlsCode is devoted to showing the world that black girls can code, and do so much more. By reaching out to the community through workshops and after school programs, BlackGirlsCode introduces computer coding lessons to young girls from underrepresented communities in programming languages such as Scratch or Ruby on Rails. BlackGirlsCode has set out to prove to the world that girls of every color have the skills to become the programmers of tomorrow. By promoting classes and programs we hope to grow the number of women of color working in technology and give underprivileged girls a chance to become the masters of their technological worlds.
Boise State - Learn Math while Making a Game - In this camp, we will teach algebra and functions in math through the use of Scratch programming language by the MIT Media Lab. Participants will learn the concept of functions while making their own games by Scratch programming. This camp is geared toward grade 5-7 students who seek to learn math with math related games that are lots of fun. Through this camp, participants will be able to grasp an understanding of the concept of functions as well as a structural and systematical programming skill. Our pursuit of this program eventually is to improve our students’ mathematical-logical thinking and to provide participants with the opportunity to apply their knowledge towards creating their own products.
