Our AspireIT camps will be held in both Lee and Collier counties and marketed through both of the school districts. We will promote our Aspirations in Computing Award cycle to as many high schools as possible in the South Florida region through email and web content to increase the number of girls that participate in the process.

    Activity Description 

    We used the Scratch program to deliver a unique paired programming experience for mothers, daughters, and sisters. Providing workbooks of activities, we challenged the participants to learn basic functionality of the Scratch program and then apply the skill sets they learned to build a unique program that solved a problem within their life or community. Allowing the participants time to work through a set of standard skills activities gave them the confidence they needed to embrace the end project where they needed to apply critical thinking skills in addition to their newly learned programming skills. Pairing the participants with family members gave them quality time to spend together working on a mutual project with the expectation that they would encourage each other to get involved with additional programming activities after the lunch and learn.
