Third year teaching these wonderful young ladies about computers and technology. Our wonderful team of tech gurus and the amazing leader of the lady debutantes has allowed this program to thrive. After teaching the ladies in four classes we end up giving a laptop for them to keep.
PatchX was honored to be able to teach the lady debutante group for a second year. The young ladies in the class asked great questions and very engaged in our hand on exercises. Using lessons from code.org and csunplugged.org/ we have developed a way to teach computer science without having a computer. A couple of the lessons we did are teaching binary, the fruit sort game and the robot game. We also ended up doing a lesson on Internet security the same day as computer security day.
One of the other students that told us she might want to do computers when she grows up. Our goal to place the computer in their hands and they can use it to follow whatever dream they will have as they grow up.
