Black Girls CODE Chicago Chapter Presents: MakeCode Arcade at Microsoft

Black Girls Code

This free, 2-hour introductory coding workshop is an engaging interactive way for young women ages 10-13 to understand more about how the opportunities computer science and coding open up for them. They will meet a local woman who works in technology; and find out that a successful career in technology is within their reach. During the hands on activity Code your own video game with MakeCode Arcade, students will use block coding to create a video game with MakeCode Arcade. Students learn fundamental game and coding concepts—like sprites, variables, and coordinates—and use their new skills to create and customize a playable game.
