During this year's camp, the goal was to refresh the returning members on their skills and introduce the new members to basic skills. We spent the first week of camp learning to create a basic webpage by completeing a short project. During the second week of camp, we broke up into teams to work on different parts of a mobile app that we connected later on to form one big app titled BlackGirlsGo. Now in our third year, IndeedWeCode continues to provide computer coding instruction and IT-related opportunities to African American high school girls in greater Cleveland. Our two-week camp convened June 12-June 23, 2017 at the Richmond Heights High School Technology Hub . This year's camp acquired new members. We also had four returning members in attendance to serve as Scrum Masters for our app teams.
This year's field trip was to New Horizons Bakery in Norwalk, Ohio. The girls were able to communicate with employees, some with technological backgrounds and some without. Through these connections, the girls were able to see how coding and technology could be implemented everyday in a business environment. Overall, it was a great opportunity. As always, the best part about visiting a bakery is tasting samples!
