Learn to program in Scratch while coding and creating a story. Designed as an introduction to coding, this class meets 3 times for 1 hour each. This is a great way to evaluate your child’s interest in learning to code. In this class, girls will learn how to program in Scratch by creating an algorithm using events and loops to create a short story. Girls animate these stories, and they will have the opportunity to share their stories with classmates, parents, and friends through the Scratch Studio. Girl Scout Brownies that complete this class earn their Coding Basics, Coding for Good badge when they also attend a free Boolean Girl Ambassador event to learn about women in STEM fields.
1) This class is for girls, in alignment with our nonprofit mission to inspire more girls to pursue STEM. Co-ed classes are also available.
2) Each class includes a short lesson and lab time where children apply the skills learned.
3) Students are encouraged to work between the classes on their own or in the lab.
4) If you are interested in applying for a scholarship, we encourage you to complete our short form to apply: https://booleangirl.org/scholarship-application/
This class will be conducted in Scratch either online at scratch.mit.edu or on your Boolean Box. We encourage you to create a user account in Scratch before the class begins.
This class will be on Zoom. We recommend connecting to Zoom with the same computer you will code on so your child can share her screen with the instructor.

Response from Boolean Girl
I am so sorry about the mistake with the posted time on Sawyer. I sent out an email with the correct time, but I know that the listing time of 4 pm - 4 pm could cause confusion! We will be holding additional free Hour of Code events throughout December on Saturdays at 3 pm ET and I hope you will sign-up for one of those!

I loved that all the teachers/ helpers were helping us by answering our questions, giving some feedback, and being positive the whole 3 hours we were there.
We could probably use more examples to explain what the outcome of our project could look like, and you could also explain why we put certain parts in the location you tell us to put it in.
