Description

Hey you! Have you joined the Canada Learning Code mailing list? If not, join here.



This is a beginner level workshop for girls 8-13 years old and their parent/guardian/aunt/older sibling.

Bring a special girl in your life to this workshop and learn to create a website together from scratch! Note: this workshop is BYOL so each parent or guardian/youth pair is required to bring one laptop on the day of the workshop as well as their own nut-free snacks.

From YouTube, to Wikipedia, the websites we click on every single day all have one thing in common - HTML & CSS!

Girls Learning Code is excited to announce an experience that offers girls the opportunity to leverage creativity to build an online web presence. The workshop will focus on reading and writing HTML & CSS using a tool called Mozilla Thimble, an easy-to-use online web making platform that allows for live previewing while coding.

In this workshop, girls will learn HTML & CSS basics by hacking pre-existing text, links, images, and videos on various templates, and then use their skills to create their very own webpage from scratch! Fundamental concepts of code, such as divs, classes and ids will enforce organization and prepare girls to continue creating - both at home and at school.

Thimble also allows for easy sharing, so their awesome webpage can be shared with you, as well as anyone else, with a link!

What parents say about Girls Learning Code:

“My daughter went to the camp without a clear understanding of what a tech camp for girls was but was pleasantly surprised by the experience. She enjoyed every single day at the camp and showed great enthusiasm about the topic she and her group chose to present. I would not hesitate to send her to another tech camp with LLC whenever the opportunity arises.”

“My daughter wasn’t sold on the idea of attending a “technology camp” for March Break. By the second day she was raving about how much fun she was having AND how much she was learning. What a great combination!”

“I learned about Girls Learning Code from the Toronto Star. I looked into it and I thought it was such a great opportunity for my daughter to be exposed in the field of technology. I was really happy that she went to Girls Learning Code because she was introduced to different programming languages, exposed to companies like Google and Mozilla and had to work with different girls she’s never met before. I wish my older daughter who is now in first year university had the same opportunity as her sister.”

“This was a great iniative that is needed to encourage females to become leaders in computer technology field. It was inspiring for my daughter to visit Google, to see a modern office space, to see a bilingual women in a leading position at Google. This camp provided a perspective to girls that they not only can play and use technology, they can design, create and become leaders in technology.”

“My daughter had a blast, the other campers were a great bunch of girls, they learned, grew and had fun. The venue was well chosen, the balance of activities was good. The extra little touches of caring were noticable and appreciated. The camp was down to earth and unpretentious but the counsellors took their jobs seriously. A+. I will recommend to other parents.”
