Share Girls Learning Code: Intro to Programming with Python

Event Details

Does getting creative with code sound like fun to you? Have you ever wanted to create a computer game? If your girl has ever wondered about how a computer works, then this is the workshop for her!


Introducing Girls Learning Code's very first Python workshop. Girls will get a crash couse in code using this free, open source, programming language. In this full day hands-on workshop, the girls will learn how to write programs that will allow them to play simple games with their computer - like hangman!
They'll create a "choose-your-own-adventure" game and even try writing some comedic code to make their own MadLibs!

Workshop Details:
When: Sunday, March 24th, 2013 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
Where: Ladies Learning Code Workshop Space @ 720 Bathurst Street, Suite 500 (Bathurst and Bloor)
Registration: $50

Scholarships are also available for those who would not otherwise be able to attend. Apply for a full or partial scholarship here.


What is Girls Learning Code?
Founded by the same women who introduced Ladies Learning Code in 2011, Girls Learning Code is less about “code” and more about changing the world – through teamwork, creativity, and, of course, technology.

What Makes Girls Learning Code Different?
Girls Learning Code has been designed specifically with girls in mind, by the team who founded Ladies Learning Code. When developing plans and curriculum for the camp, we keep in mind a recurrent theme in research on gender and technology: girls approach the computer as a “tool” useful primarily for what it can do; boys more often view the computer as a “toy” or an extension of the self. Thus, the theme of each week will be “Changing the World” and technology will be used as the means, not the end.

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.”
