Come celebrate Computer Science Education Week with this free two-hour workshop where Latina girls eight and older use block coding to create a video game with MakeCode Arcade. Students learn fundamental game and coding concepts—like sprites, variables, and coordinates—and use their new skills to create and customize a playable game.
By the end of the workshop, students will have:
- Learned and used key game design and coding concepts
- Shared their games with a partner for inspiration
- Published their game via URL so they can continue to play and develop it after the workshop
They will watch a pre-recorded event featuring a female Latina mentor who works in technology and find out that a successful career in technology is within their reach.
