Special Events for the 'Hour of Code'
Wednesday December 7th from 9-10:30 AM
West Somerville Neighborhood School
This session is for grades 5-8
The Girl Hackathon is a two hour program that empowers upper elementary/middle school girls to experience the creativity and excitement that occurs when the power of coding is unleashed.
Designed to teach the basic concepts of coding through Hopscotch, a coding platform used to create original games, the Girl Hackathon pairs volunteers with teams of two girls to provide a hands-on experience into the world of coding, ultimately sparking a lifelong interest in the possibilities of technology.
