Response from Boolean Girl

Hi Ethan Thanks for the feedback. We are looking at expanding the Free Hour of Code events next fall. While the current events focus on true beginners we will see what we can add to the mix. Know that we do cover more advanced code blocks and "harder" things in our longer, 3 day and 10 day classes and camps.

Response from Boolean Girl

Hi Brenda There must be some confusion here. Girl Scouts from across the county are welcome as are all girls and even boys. I'd be happy to discuss this with you and try to clear up any confusion concerning your belief that girls from California are not welcome. We do have one more set of HOC events and welcome your daughters participation.

The class was great because it taught my daughter a few new coding tricks and kept her engaged for the whole time!
