About this event:

Have you ever wanted to learn how to control your computer to do things for you? Does getting creative with code sound like fun? If so, then this is the workshop for you! 

Meet Ruby Robot! You'll teach her how to add and subtract, make a peanut butter sandwich and play Mad Libs with you all using code, in this hands on, full day workshop!

Join Girls Learning Code as we learn to program using the open-source coding language, Ruby! This workshop is designed to introduce beginners to coding in a fun, interactive way. We'll play code based games, solves puzzles and complete online activities to help us learn all about the language. Together, we'll make our computers follow our instructions. We'll make them do math, play games, and even speak! 

What is Girls Learning Code? 

Founded by the same women who introduced Ladies Learning Code in 2011, Girls Learning Code is less about “code” and more about changing the world – through teamwork, creativity, and, of course, technology.

What Makes Girls Learning Code Different?

Girls Learning Code has been designed specifically with girls in mind, by the team who founded Ladies Learning Code. When developing plans and curriculum for the camp, we keep in mind a recurrent theme in research on gender and technology: girls approach the computer as a “tool” useful primarily for what it can do; boys more often view the computer as a “toy” or an extension of the self. Thus, the theme of each week will be “Changing the World” and technology will be used as the means, not the end.
