Creative Spark will host a free online coding event for local Girls, aged 8 to 13 years. This event will introduce girls to coding and computer science using Scratch, a fun visual programming language for children.
Our event will use specially recorded video lessons to show the girls how to create a game in Scratch, with a Show-And-Tell session afterwards, facilitated by experienced coding tutors for any questions, and to show off their games.
The girls can follow the step-by-step lesson, pause where recommended to complete a step and then move on at their own pace.
There will be separate lessons for Beginners and Improvers. Beginners will learn how Scratch works, and create their first game in Scratch. Improvers who are familiar with Scratch will create a more complex game with a score and sounds.
We will show the girls that technology is fun and creative, and not just for boys! We will tap into their curiosity and encourage them to explore technology and show them that they can become innovators and inventors of technology in the future.
