Computer Science Education Week is coming December 4-10, and so is Hour of Code!

Girl Scouts of Greater New York is once again teaming up with Vidcode, an online interactive software, for our Council's participation in "Hour of Code", a worldwide movement organized by Code.org that helps kids learn about the fantastic world of computer programming!

Completing YOUR Hour of Code through your troop or at home? Pledge to complete one hour of code - and represent Girl Scouts in this global movement! 

The tutorial is now live!

Complete the hour of code at any time during Computer Science Education Week (12/4-12/10) and earn a patch and certificate! Our goal is for as many girls as possible to participate by using our one-hour tutorial to practice coding during Computer Science Education Week. Pass it along!

If you would like to request Hour of Code patches for your troop, please click here. Be sure to fill out the form completely and accurately to receive patches.


*NEW* GSGNY/VIDCODE ONLINE TUTORIAL:

A great troop activity! Get the word out to your friends around the country! Ask a local school to sign up! Or host a TechJam event yourself using this tutorial as the centerpiece, where girls bring their own devices and share - everyone can benefit from learning the basics!

AGE RANGE: 10-18

Your 10 to 18 year-olds can create their own "video magic" with code using our NEW tutorial to broadcast their achievements and show they are girls of confidence, and character or by making an online greeting card. Through special online tutorials created with our Girl Scouts in mind, they will learn the basics of the most popular computer programming language on the web - JavaScript.

AGE RANGE 5-9

Younger kids can get in on the action, too - our tutorial also includes links to special online and offline activities specially designed for younger, budding programmers.
