On February 23, 2020, the All Girls STEM Society hosted the Scratch Programming workshop led by Audrey and Kira at the Mission Valley Public Library. In this workshop, girls learned about the basics of computer programming and got the chance to experience coding with Scratch. Scratch is a block-interface programming language, in which users can create algorithms for the cat to preform such as gliding, disappearing, spinning, or obtaining user input.
When the girls first arrived, they worked on binary-code word puzzles. In their words, they were excited to “learn new things” and “explore the new website.” Audrey and Kira opened the workshop with the definition and history of computer science including the inspiring Grace Hopper, also known as the “Queen of Code.”
