Amador Girls Who Code
Young girls and nonbinary students were recently taught how to program and write code during the Amador Valley High School Girls Who Code club's fourth annual summit at the school on March 11.
More than 150 students in grades three through eight attended the event, which had a space exploration theme. The students had to work their way through an escape room by programming robots, which were provided by the club, to travel in all directions and use their LED light to flash different patterns.
"It’s a really fulfilling experience to be able to pass on the knowledge we’ve gained and worked together to develop," Ella Jeon, one of the high school mentors for the club, said in a press release.
