Coding Clubs, Camps & Workshops

CodeHER creative coding clubs meet weekly either in person or online and are for 3rd-8th grade girls and non-binary students. Club participants learn web and mobile app development, 3D modeling, game design, and tools for digital art and design. Club instructors are often alumni, trained instructors with a CS background or are Code/Art-trained teachers who lead a club as a school elective or after school club.

“I love when you look back at your code and it looks really complex it’s really cool to think ‘wow I did that and I understand it.'”

End of Year Showcase

CodeHER Club members gain programming skills in the first two-thirds of the year that they utilize in a capstone group coding project – where they build a website, app, or game.

At the end of each school year, students present their projects during a showcase/graduation event hosted by Code/Art for parents, students and instructors to attend and celebrate the accomplishments from that shool year.

CodeHER Summer Camp

CodeHER Creative Coding Camp is a FREE week-long virtual coding camp where girls will learn game design, 3D modeling, coded art, and animation. By week’s end, campers will have a portfolio of projects to share with the group during the camp showcase!

 

The virtual camp will be hosted online. This is a fun and creative introduction to coding for girls in grades 3-6. No prior coding experience is required!
