Girls Who Code Graduation – McNair Middle School Cool Girls with Girls Who Code Volunteers
The McNair Middle School Girls Club was a little different this year as Girls Who Code piloted their technology program in an effort to encourage girls to explore technology and engineering careers. After six months of weekly coding instruction, Girls Who Code awarded participants with a certificate of completion for their hard work and diligence in learning how to code.
The girls worked with Scratch, a beginner computer coding program, and had the opportunity to create their own interactive computer game, greeting card, and animation using various commands given by the instructors. Many girls said that they were happy to have had the chance to be involved with Girls Who Code and plan to continue working with Scratch and continue building their own game.
