GTGTC x Burlingame High: Hour of Code
Code.org provided students with different sources to code anything from a multiplayer game to an appealing visual. Students interacted at the event and got to ask each other questions and work through the code whenever there was a bug in the code. They coded and laughed over snacks (sponsored by Stanford) and had the opportunity to code with Princess Anna and Elsa from Disney’s Frozen. After Hour of Code, Junior Katherine Brogan expressed that “[her] prior exposure to computer science wasn’t very positive, but Girls Teaching Girls to Code changed that opinion.”

The GTGTC High School Liaisons have been planning and running Hour of Code events at their high schools to introduce more girls to coding.
