Event Details

This is a beginner level workshop

Why learn about Storytelling?

From bedtime stories to Saturday morning cartoons to knock-knock jokes, storytelling has the power to inspire, educate, and entertain.

Traditionally, storytelling has been told through word-of-mouth, books, and theatrical plays. Today, in a digitally connected world that loves to share information, stories are increasingly told online through videos and animations.

In this workshop, kids will experience the blending of traditional and modern storytelling approaches by using Scratch Jr., a beginner level programming environment, to digitally recreate, reimagine, and revise popular children’s books! Carefully crafted with a balance of offline and online activities, the workshop will teach your children the foundations of computational thinking through a variety of engaging exercises! Each Storytelling with Scratch Jr. workshop has the same flow, but different activities. Come and create a new animation every time!

What is Kids Learning Code? 
Founded by the same women who introduced Ladies Learning Code and Girls Learning Code in 2012, Kids Learning Code is less about “code” and more about changing the world – through teamwork, creativity, and, of course, technology, while leveraging team diversity. 

What Makes Kids Learning Code Different? 
Kids Learning Code has been designed specifically with gender diversity in mind. Like Girls Learning Code, these workshops are beginner-friendly, hands-on and fun. Our 4:1 ratio of kids to mentors will be maintained with balanced numbers of male and female mentors. We believe that if we want to encourage more girls to enter the field of technology, we need to help boys and girls learn to work in technical environments together effectively. Thus, 50% of tickets will be reserved for boys and 50% for girls. 

When developing plans and curriculum for our workshops, 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, technology is used as the means, not the end. 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.”
