2017 Tapia Conference

BWiC Gaming Workshop for High School Students

Saturday, September 23, 2017 — 8:00AM - 5:00PM

Sponsored by Black Women in Computing (BWiC) and CMD-IT

The Black Women in Computing (BWiC) Gaming Workshop is a one-day game development workshop for high school students ages 13-18. The workshop will be taught by developers from Hidden Level Games (HLG), a New York-based game and software company. Participants will be introduced to computer science principles using a visual art digital design tool for learning Javascript code and producing Emoticons. The purpose of this workshop is to increase students’ interest in computer science and programming, to promote education and careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), and to support historically under-served and underrepresented students with limited opportunities or access to resources in these areas. This workshop is geared toward students with no prior experience in computer science or programming.
