In this course, the girls will learn about the basics of what computers are all about and how do they work.

The goal of this program is to introduce the girls to the world of computers in a hands-on and fun way. All the concepts are taught using storytelling, drawing, discussions, visual cues, brainteasers, and craft activities. The girls will build a solid foundation of the basics of computers and robotics along with their implications in the real world. After this course, the girls will be ready to move on to our core coding program called Introduction to Scratch Level 1 in the Rover age group.

 

This 8 session long program is intended for girls in the 7-8-year-old age group who are new to the world of computers. All the material will be emailed to the parents upon registration. The parents will be requested to PRINT OUT all the worksheets and handouts and keep them ready in a file. The girls will need this file, along with pencil, glue, child-friendly scissors, coloring pens, and plain white paper in each class. Video call screen is the only technology we will be using to conduct this program.
