~The IT Persin,
Tonight, our middle school is hosing its 2nd annual STREAM night. I will be representing the T (technology) and science. The resource I am excited to share is Google's Made with Code.
Made with Code was launched to ignite passion for technology and computer coding in teenage girls. Did you know that...
"By high school, only 0.4% of teen girls plan to major in Computer Science?" (New York Times Reference Article)
I find the projects on Made with Code relevant, engaging, and helpful to translate block based code into line coding.
Be the Difference!
