Description



Why learn JavaScript?

This workshop will focus on teaching the fundamentals of computer programming in a visual context, and highlight how simple mathematical equations can create beautiful and engaging outcomes. (You don't need to be a math wizard - Processing does the calculating for us!)

We'll use p5.js, which is a processing 'flavour' that builds upon the JavaScript programming language, and is often used in electronic arts, new media art, and visual design. The application itself allows anyone to code in something called a Sketchbook, where programs can be saved and previewed instantly. Learners will use geometrical shapes and lines to create interactivity with their mouse and keyboard, and use colours to create visually intricate designs!

Prerequisites:

None! This workshop is designed for beginners.

About Our Girls Learning Code Program

Our Girls Learning Code program offers girls, transgender, and beyond gender binary kids ages 3-12 hands-on experiences designed to inspire them to see technology in a whole new light – as a medium for self-expression, and as a means for changing the world. Girls Learning Code gives the next generation of kid creators the tools they need to unlock all the possibilities of our digital world!

Our workshops, camps and meetups provide girls, transgender, and beyond gender binary kids with positive and welcoming learning environments through which they can come to know themselves as powerful and capable builders of technology!
