Description

Black Girls CODE Atlanta Chapter is excited to host a Game Jam!


Ages 5-8: Tech Divas will be learning coding fundamentals with Kodu for Kids. Kodu enables you to build games using a series of visual elements in a rich 3D environment. Microsoft describes Kodu as being ‘… designed to be accessible for children and enjoyable for anyone.’


Ages 9-13: Tech Divas will be using CodeCombat, a platform for students to learn computer science while playing through a real game. Through CodeCombat they will learn javascript the "language of the internet".


Ages 14-17: Tech Divas will be using Phaser.js to build a game for the web. Phaser is a fast, free and open source framework for Canvas and WebGL powered browser games.


Check-in will begin at 9:15AM, and the workshop will start promptly at 10:00AM.


Participants do not need to bring their own laptops; lunch and light snacks will be provided.


Participants in need of a scholarship, please apply here. Scholarships are awarded on a first come, first served basis.
