Facilitators will decide whether your Club will complete an "unplugged" or an "online" activity for each Club session.
At Girls Who Code, we know that coding is a collaborative field that requires teamwork, good listening skills, and patience with your peers. For that reason, we recommend that girls work on all of the activities - but especially the online challenges - in pairs. This helps to build sisterhood and communication skills because girls will have a buddy to help them if they get stuck.
If your Club is tackling an online GWC Challenge, you’ll be using Scratch. Scratch is a free, online coding language and community developed by MIT. It is designed to help beginners of all ages unlock their creative powers through computing. While you can code on Scratch without an account, we recommend registering to get access to all of the awesome tools Scratch offers -- including the ability to save and share your work!
