Python Programming for Technical Turtles Teaches Girls To Come Out Of Their Shells
By Danica Chen, Del Norte High School
On November 13, 2016, the AGSS held its second workshop in partnership with Coding The Future: Python Programming With Technical Turtles, designed to teach girls from third to fifth grade how to program in Python. A total of 25 girls showed up from 23 schools. Turtles were the theme of this workshop–not only did the girls learned how to use Python by coding digital turtles to draw various shapes and patterns, they earned cute turtle erasers as rewards for answering questions correctly.
