Here is a school holiday activity for younger kids who want to do some coding (ages 5-8):
#MissMakesCode is the first hackathon in the world created to build confidence and self efficacy in the areas of algorithmic thinking, programming and coding for in young girls from 5-8 years of age.
There will be explicit teaching of visible thinking skills so that the girls will be able to work in a variety of computational ways to solve problems via coding, in a day of specially designed workshops.
These 😀fun😀 and engaging workshops will be run by specialist teachers who will utilise iPad Apps to teach and hone this skill set. To ensure solid pedagogical approaches are used, #MissMakesCode aligns with the Digital Technologies Curriculum.
This premiere event will help to increase the numbers of women in future IT careers and diversify IT roles for women.
I hope you have fun!
