Every day will look slightly different, but we structure the time to maximize learning, sisterhood, and fun! The virtual Summer Immersion Program will take place Monday - Friday (except holidays), and includes class time and individual work.
We offer optional Student Hours for any additional support or help on weekly projects you might need. Students will attend Partner-sponsored events during class time, collaborate with classmates in sisterhood activities, participate in web-based coding, and work on final projects.
During week two, we are going to challenge you to design your own game in only 4 days. This project will take the form of a GameJam, where you and/or a group of friends will prototype a game using the skills you learned in Week #1. You will design your game around a specific prompt that we will reveal during the program. Along the way, we’ll cover the fundamentals of user experience design, rapid prototyping, and playtesting, as well as introduce you to many different computer science careers. At the end of the two weeks, we’ll showcase our games and celebrate our achievements. All daily activities, materials, and projects will be available to students before class each day.
Please note: Our Curriculum team has added script to all video content, and all of our Girls Who Code HQ content is also screen reader accessible.
