This is our third workshop in Python, because we just can't get enough of it! Python is a powerful scripting language used in academia and professional settings all the time -- we're learning some really useful skills. For this workshop, we'll be using Python and its Turtle module to learn about computational thinking: loops, random numbers, conditionals, and other fundamental concepts in computer science. We'll put them all together to build fun Python games!

Dr. Laney Strange launchedTufts Girls of Codein 2016, and we've hosted dozens of young women here at Tufts to learn about coding and to meet and support others. At a Tufts Girls of Code workshop, Dr. Strange and a fabulous cohort of current Tufts computer science students conduct a fun a interactive learning experience that includes an introduction to computer programming, hands-on coding assignments, and usually a pretty awesome project you can keep working on forever, as computer scientists tend to do.

Tufts Girls of Codehosts coding workshops for girls to spark engagement and interest in Computer Science. The goal of Tufts Girls of Code is to create a welcoming environment for girls and other individuals who are frequently underrepresented in computer science. With that in mind, we welcome children all ages 10-18 to participate in our workshops.

We heartily welcome questions, comments, and feedback! Reach out to laney@cs.tufts.edu, 415-559-2759 with any of the above. Hope to see you at a workshop!
