Event Details

Python is a popular, powerful programming language used by the pros all the time. Through the gaming framework RenPy, we'll write real Python code to create a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure game featuring Hermione Granger (#teamgriffyndor!).

Our guest speaker for this workshop will be Facebook software engineer Laney Kuenzel. We are thrilled to have her!

Hermione Granger and RenPy


Dr. Laney Strange launched Tufts Girls of Code in 2016, and we've hosted dozens of young women here at Tufts to learn about coding and to meet and support others. At a Tufts Girls of Code workshop, Dr. Strange and a fabulous cohort of current Tufts computer science students conduct a fun a interactive learning experience that includes an introduction to computer programming, hands-on coding assignments, and usually a pretty awesome project you can keep working on forever, as computer scientists tend to do.

Tufts Girls of Code hosts coding workshops for girls to spark engagement and interest in Computer Science. The goal of Tufts Girls of Code is to create a welcoming environment for girls and other individuals who are frequently underrepresented in computer science. With that in mind, we welcome children all ages 10-18 to participate in our workshops.

We heartily welcome questions, comments, and feedback! Reach out to laney@cs.tufts.edu, 415-559-2759 with any of the above. Hope to see you at a workshop!
