Want to see how coding and electronics can be fun? This program is an introduction to computer science and electronics using Scratch programming and the BooleanGirl kits. Each kit is a “build-it-yourself computer designed by girls for everyone.” We will be writing our own computer games and building our own light displays. The kits are rated, “OMG, SO COOL!” by a knowledgable local 4th grader. No prior experience necessary, and participants keep the kits!
