Black Girls CODE: “Build a Game in a Day w/Scratch”

The CBU School of Engineering will host “Build a Game in a Day w/Scratch” in conjunction with the Memphis Chapter of Black Girls CODE on November 2, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. This workshop will focus on game development using Scratch, a programming project spearheaded by the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab. Taught by Dr. Juan Carlos Olabe (Electrical & Computer Engineering), the workshop will be geared towards introducing girls ages 10-17 to animation, gaming, and creating interactive stories. The workshop is designed to encourage student-driven learning, as participants think analytically, design, play, and code in real-time. Black Girls CODE is a national organization whose mission is to empower young women of color between the ages of 7-18 to embrace the current tech marketplace as builders and creators.

Cost is $35 - Students may purchase a Black Girls CODE t’shirt for an additional $20.
