We are reviewing the CoderDojo Girls guide we developed last year and wanted to link to pieces of content that Dojos have found specifically useful or appealing to young girls.
What in your experience has been particularly successful in engaging young girls. Are there projects you’ve used that you’d like to share to be included or linked to?
Look forward to hearing whats worked in your cases,
We have a few primary school girls @naascoderdojo very engaged with @sonic_pi
The built in help and tutorials in Sonic Pi make it easy to get started.
They code music and we help them present it, occasionally as karaoke eg.
@Damian-Mooney I’ve found the everyone at our Dojo loves using Sonic Pi! We had one kid program the Mario Kart theme song last week.
Did you see our new blog with top tips for encouraging girls in tech?
You can see it here. If you have more ideas or input, just comment below
