High school girls will start learning computer science principles with CS Unplugged. Once the girls have an understanding of the basic concepts, we will apply what was learned to use electronics. The class will learn the basics of electronics and use the new programming knowledge to make robots! This session will feature mentoring from women in computer science and building devices that solve problems. Please note that no prior experience is needed; you will learn everything you need in this class.
