Vidcode & Girl Scouts of Greater New York have teamed up this Computer Science Education Week. Read about it…

Omashani, our SchoolNet Intel visionary says she met this Vidcode team whilst in San Francisco at the Intel Visionary Program recently. She reports that they are amazing and are keen to help girls code scripts for video. We thought we’d write about some of their recent contributions to Computer Science Education Week…


Computer Science Education Week started yesterday! It takes place this December 7th to the 13th. It’s a week to build and learn with code – anyone can do it. It’s a time for schools, teachers, and communities to set aside a small amount of time devoted to exposing students to a greater realm of CS opportunities.

For this year’s Computer Science Education Week Vidcode & Girl Scouts of Greater New York have teamed up and they’ve built a special Tech Jam and Hour of Code in partnership with the Girl Scouts of Greater New York. Their partnership is centered around a shared commitment to give teen girls leadership and STEM opportunities.

Read more about the partnership, Tech Jam and Hour of Code on their blog.

They’re reaching out to US and YOU to ask us to spread the word. Do you know a teenager who’s interested in coding but doesn’t know where to start? Or a teacher looking for a fun and engaging Computer Science Education Week activity for their classroom? Just give them the link –

They’ve also put together social media posts for you to share and spread the word with your community! Use any of the messages below on Twitter, Facebook, or anywhere you share.
