Coding & Leadership Institute Recap!


  We’re so sad that this week-long coding and design program had to come to an end. Luckily, the girls were able to bring home the jewelry boxes they designed and created themselves as souvenirs!




Each day began with the girls moving through a series of coding challenges, which led to them designing and creating their own video game using scratch software. In the afternoons the girls had time to build boxes they designed using Tinkercad software. They cut and assembled all of the pieces on their own.

Afternoon activities ranged from playing Jeopardy with our guests from Stony Brook’s Women in Science and Engineering program to interesting lessons on balances meals with a nutritionist to a wonderful career panel full of successful women!

On other days, the girls participated in engaging activities on how to be a leader and enact change in their communities. They talked about the problems their communities face and different ways they can solve them, as well as what being a leader would mean for them. They also read and then wrote their own poetry around social justice issues important to them.
