Scratch Workshop for Girls

Tue, March 17
4:30 pm - 6:00 pm


Code is everywhere. Come learn to create your own code!

Join us for this all-girls Scratch workshop.

In this step-by-step workshop we’ll help you learn enough vector drawing and coding to design and program your own interactive character.  With a few colorful blocks of code and a little creativity you’ll be able to design your own character, animate it, and program it to talk, move around, and even have a conversation! At the end we’ll have a chance to share our work, and even get our characters to “meet” in a shared project!

This workshop is part of series that Holyoke Codes is offering to help people get involved in coding in a supportive environment.  Using Scratch, you can program your own interactive stories, games, and animations — and share your creations with others in the incredible worldwide Scratch online community.

Scratch helps people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively — essential skills for life in the 21st century.

All levels of scratch experience are welcome to attend. We will have instruction with paper tutorials, offer additional challenges, and provide general support for those who want to explore Scratch on their own. There will also be opportunities to share ideas and techniques with other coders.

The event is ideal for girls aged 7 to 127. Girls under 17 should come with an adult. Laptops are available at the MGHPCC but please bring one, if you you’d like.

Please register to let us know you are coming. Space is limited.
