Inspiring Girls to Code with Girl Scouts of Southwest Texas
Recently, we had the honor of collaborating with the Girl Scouts of Southwest Texas (GSSWTX) to launch the Video Game Design Coding Club. Twenty-eight Girl Scout Juniors (4th & 5th grade) from across the region will meet virtually once a month for the next five months to complete the course. Upon completion, participants will have designed their own video game with the Scratch interface.
“Our partnership with the San Antonio Museum of Science and Technology aligns wonderfully with our goal of creating girl leaders in STEM and helping bridge the gender gap by ensuring that girls of every age have opportunities to participate in progressive, multiyear STEM experiences. These girls will work with SAMSAT staff to earn their Coding for Good Badges and explore how computer scientists create programs and video games that can help others.” – Rachel Vara - GSSWTX STEM Program & Curriculum Coordinator.
Additionally, SAMSAT and GSSWT are collaborating on other online classes such the Robotics Badge Workshop.
