2018-19 FVGCC Schedule

Fox Valley Girls Coding Club will meet for the 2018-19 school year on Friday evenings from 5:45 p.m.-7:45 p.m. at 25N Coworking on River Street in downtown Geneva.  FVGCC is open to all girls, ages 14-18.  Limited spaces are available so please sign up now! Contact us at fvgcc12@gmail.com.


October 2018 – December 2019: We will start with the basics of programming, using Scratch (https://scratch.mit.edu/) for one week, and then we will move on to modern JavaScript and React Web Development.

January – March 2019: We will discuss a new project, perhaps taking our knowledge of React and giving React Native a try for Mobile Development (iOS and Android)? Perhaps we will split into groups and some girls may want to explore Unity 2D and 3D Gaming? We can also take a look at some AI projects in Azure? Perhaps building this cool project to use Azure Cognitive Services to identify stuffed animals from a mobile phone.  Girls choose!

Gadget Month (April 2019): Awesome Shield has a pretty cool Arduino based hardware shield that can be used with their Ardiuno library in Adruino Studio. This might be a good stepping stone to more advanced bread-boarding with Arduino and Arduino Studio if the girls want to go in that direction! In the past, the girls have also used Makey Makeys to play the games they have built. We could take those to the next level and use some of the more advanced keyboard features. Robin also has a Hololens, Ozobot, Rasberry Pis to play with! Also, we can design models for 3D Printing using TinkerCad.
