Black Girls CODE is a proud member of the American Express #PassionProject!
Black Girls CODE in collaboration with CODE LIBERATION is excited to kickoff Computer Science Education Week and host an exciting game development workshop and game jam for girls on Saturday, December 6, 2014 in Brooklyn. This workshop will focus on game development with Gamemaker: Studio. GameMaker: Studio is a game development tool which caters to entry-level novices and seasoned game development professionals equally, allowing them to create cross-platform games in record time. This workshop is designed to encourage student-driven learning, as participants think analytically, design, play and code in real-time.
After the workshop, the game jam portion will give students time to exercise the information they just learned and create their own games in a collaborative environment.
Imagine the Impact
When we give girls of color the tools to develop their own future, great things are bound to happen. BGC founder Kimberly Bryant can definitely relate. Read what she has to say about girls in STEM fields.
