Girls Learning Code Animating & Storytelling with Scratch for girls 6-8 and their parents

From Saturday morning cartoons to blockbuster films, animating has the power to inspire, educate, and entertain.

Traditionally, animation involves drawing several pictures, sometimes thousands, then playing them in sequence to create the illusion of movement. Today, we have digital tools that help us create animations more easily by letting us control characters, backgrounds, and even sounds with code.

This experience offers girls the opportunity to express their creativity in a super fun environment, and learn about the different elements of a story, as well as character interaction and basic design principles. Each Animating with Scratch workshop has the same flow, but different activities. Come and create a new animation every time!

Using Scratch, a beginner level programming environment, girls will create interactive stories through animation. Girls will also be introduced to Scratch’s amazing online community, sloganed: “Imagine, Program, Share,” where they will have the opportunity to upload their stories for others to enjoy!

This is a pay-what-you-can ticket to register a 6-8 year old female identified youth and their parent/guardian. Suggested donation is $30.
