Event description

Description

This workshop will be geared toward introducing participants to animation, gaming, and interactive stories. The workshop is designed to encourage student-driven learning, as participants think analytically, design, play and code in real-time.

Ages 7-9: 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 10-13: 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.

All BGC events are geared towards introducing participants to the technological universe and encouraging them to pursue careers as Tech Creators and Entrepreneurs. This event is intended for girls ages 7-17. No prior computing experience is necessary.
