      Code Like a Girl: Junior Workshop - Creative Coding (Ages 10-15)

      What better way to celebrate National Science Week than to spend it with your daughters & favourite young girls bonding over tech and learning awesome new skills!   This is a great opportunity for the young ones to share their interest in coding with that important person in their life. You. Come along for your first play with the amazing Arduino.   "Arduino boards are able to read inputs - light on a sensor, a finger on a button, or a Twitter message - and turn it into an output - activating a motor, turning on an LED, publishing something online. You can tell your board what to do by sending a set of instructions to the microcontroller on the board*." We will give you a good primer on the programming basics needed to use the Arduino followed by a hands on session where you will work together and tap into your creative side to play around and program something cool. In this workshop, you will program your own Arduino from scratch. We will cover the following topics: The difference between a laptop and an Arduino. What ‘programming’ actually is? High level overview of basic programming concepts including variables, loops, data structures (arrays), ‘if’ statements and functions. Set up and programming of the Arduino, including some of the basic terms used to code it. * Details When: Thursday, August 15, 2019, 5pm - 7pmWhere: Hunter Valley Grammar School, 42 Norfolk St, Ashtonfield NSW 2323Participants: Beginners - dabblers, father/mothers/guardians/aunts bringing their special ones, girls aged 10  to 15 years old (daughters/nieces/etc)Prerequisites: You don’t need any prior knowledge of programming.
