Loved:

I loved how easy it was to understand! I learned lots of new things, in python, which had never done before. The instructor told me how to do it step by step. Introducing me to many new concepts, such as filling in shapes, picking up and down pen, making different shapes and many more.

Loved:

My daughter age 10 loved it! Teacher was so patient.

Improvements:

maybe 10 mins before class or something the teacher can check with each participant if they have downloaded the correct software .... We did and I was sitting next to her, but a couple of other kids did not seem to have it downloaded. If you don't have the software (free) downloaded, you can do the class.

If we had gotten the Zoom link earlier, it would have been less stressful.

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.
