During this workshop, participants will explore coding fundamentals with Google Blockly and SmartGurlz robots and dolls. Our Tech Divas will learn about why coding is important and then get to jump into action by learning to code robots – step-by-step. In this introductory course, (ages 7-12) girls will work together in teams think analytically, design, play, and code in real-time. We also have loads of fun making robot dances, games and videos.

This class is designed for girls ages 12 and under. No prior computing experience is necessary.
