On the heels of receiving a $50,000 grant from Bank of the West, Black Girls Code (BGC) is returning to Atlanta on Saturday, December 8, 2012 to host a one-day workshop that will teach girls, age 10-17, how to build their own mobile applications for Android phones at the Georgia Institute of Technology at the Klaus Advanced Computing Building (266 Ferst Drive Northwest) from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
BGC will utilize AppInventor, a fun and simple tool that allows young code developers to create mobile apps for Android phones. Using an easy drag-and-drop interface, the girls will also learn how to write music apps, tell fortunes and more.
Prior programming experience is not required to participate as BGC provides one-day workshops and week-long classes introducing young girls to computer programming, robotics, electrical engineering and other areas of STEM in inner cities across the nation.
BGC will also host a one day web-building workshops in Los Angeles on December 15th at the University of Southern California. The organization has plans for an extensive series of workshops in February during Black History Month with classes in cities such as Memphis, Oakland, Miami, Atlanta and New York on the roster.
