The NCWIT Girls CodeIT Camp was a 4-day workshop consisting of 20 girls at George Mason Univeristy from 9am to 3pm. It was targeted towards girls in grades 3-8. Middle schools girls were introduced to the principles of programming through Scratch, the CS First website, and Code.org. They learned efficiency, problem solving, logic, and collaboration throughout the camp in addition to multiple computer science principles such as conditionals, loops, HTML, syntax, objects, and variables. After three days of instruction, they had to create a game that addresses an issue in their own community. On the last day of the workshop, the students had to present their final project to classmates and parents.
