Successful Summer Camp at Buist Academy Encourages Female Students to Learn Computer Coding

Buist3Students participated in a whirlwind of fun, engaging, and hands-on computer science activities during the “Yes, We Code” Girls Coding Camp held at Buist Academy this summer. Participants had the opportunity to experiment with different computer programming languages, website development, game design and 3-D computer animation.

Students used CSS and JavaScript to create a website and silly wanted ad posters. They explored Blockly coding and even created their very own a Flappy bird game for their smartphone. They defeated enemies while learning python programming through educational “gamification”.Students also got to visit the local Apple Store on King Street where they learning about Swift Code programming, and even learned code that made their robots dance!

Thank you Pamela Rijo for sharing this CTE success story!
