More About the Program
This program is a chance for girls in 6th-8th grades to be exposed to both computer programming and robotics. The program will be completely over Zoom and the materials needed for the program will be shipped to the participants before the start of the program. Throughout the duration of this program, the participants will build 2 robots (one that requires coding and one that does not), and will program a final project using Scratch. The program costs $10 and is every Friday from 6-8 pm EST for 12 weeks.
For more information, contact Kathleen.
