We are happy to welcome the girls attending the 2016 GEMS event at Niles West High School on April 16th and visiting our Web site. We hope you may be inspired to participate in a coding club for girls too! Or maybe even to be a Founder of a new club in your area.
I am honored to be a presenter at the event as a representative of our Fox Valley Girls Coding Club and of the Illinois Technology Foundation and am very much looking forward to meeting the girls interested in learning about coding as a profession or just as something very fun to do.
We will be doing a hands-on session that includes an introduction to Scratch, a graphical programming language, the same one that we use here at Fox Valley Girls Coding Club to get started with coding. Here are notes from the session if anyone would like them: Introduction to Scratch
