HER Academy’s computer science clubs for girls and nonbinary students ages 9-12 meet weekly via Zoom throughout the school year.
Club members receive access to detailed instructions for each project at the beginning of the month and meet once a week with their peers and instructors for a short live lesson and assisted work time. Girls will get dedicated coding time with a cohort who shares their interest. Those who complete their coding projects early will receive special challenges to further their learning and continue the fun!
With guidance from their instructor and support from their peers, your child will work their way through a series of programming challenges that will familiarize them with the Scratch block-based coding platform and introduce them to computer science concepts including events, the coordinate grid, sequencing, conditionals, and loops. This class is for girls who have little to no experience in computer science or who could use a refresher on the basics before tackling more complex projects.
Projects include telling a joke, coding a dance party, and designing a maze game.
Returning HER Academy students may register for Level 2 to develop their programming and storytelling skills through game design. Your child will learn how to use the Scratch platform to develop her own versions of popular games such as Pacwoman. Over the course of the year, she will develop mastery of computer science concepts including events, the coordinate grid, sequencing, conditionals, and loops and be introduced to variables, operators, and functions.
Projects include designing various multi-level games with obstacles and coding a short animated “film.”
BUILD HER coding clubs will meet every Wednesday from September 20, 2023 through May 8, 2024, with the following exceptions. There will be NO coding club:
