Black Girls CODE is a proud member of the American Express #PassionProject!
Despite the gray weather on Saturday, December 6th, over 50 girls arrived in high spirits for the first Black Girls CODE X Code Liberation Game Jam. The game jam kicked off the New York Chapter of Black Girls CODE’s celebration of Computer Science Education Week and was hosted by NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering and. The girls, who ranged from ages 8 to 16 and hailed from across New York City, completed 5 hours of coding education using GameMaker: Studio. Our young tech divas completed their coding missions on Microsoft Surface Pro 3 tablets on loan from Microsoft New York. Learn more about what our tech divas learned during the day in this great blog recapping our events during the day (link) and check out the cool recap video from Code Liberation below!
