Laney Strange and Ben Hescott, Northeastern University
Northeastern University, 210 West Village H, 440 Huntington Ave, Boston MA, 02115
This hands-on computer science workshop has a music theme! We will learn about the role of programming in making music, and come up with some cool sounds of our own. No computer science background is required or expected — we will start from the beginning. No musical background is required, either. Fair warning: Instructor will sing along to your digital music frequently, loudly, and off-key.
This workshop welcomes girls ages 10-16. We intend an inclusive definition of girls. We are welcoming and respectful of trans girls and any others who identify as a girl in a way that is significant to them.
About Women’s Community of Code
Women’s Community of Code is a collaboration between Dr. Laney Strange and Dr. Ben Hescott of Northeastern University. Laney and Ben are computer science professors strongly committed to making computer science accessible to everyone. We’re excited to bring coding to more women and girls in the Boston area!
At these workshops, Laney conducts a fun and interactive learning experience that includes an introduction to computer programming, hands-on coding assignments, and usually a pretty awesome project you can keep working on forever, as computer scientists tend to do.
Our workshops are beginner friendly and free to participate. We heartily welcome questions, comments, and feedback: reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org, (415) 559-2759 with any of the above.
