This camp is a week's worth of instruction, using the Girls Who Code curriculum as a foundation with supplemental activities as the students are interested and/or what is available at Roux. The purpose is to introduce girls (+ nonbinary students) to the fundamentals of programming. And to support teachers with PD so they feel prepared to launch a club in the fall.
Gifted children and adults are often misunderstood. Their excitement is viewed as excessive, their high energy as hyperactivity, their persistence as nagging, their imagination as not paying attention, their passion as being disruptive, their strong emotions and sensitivity as immaturity, their creativity and self-directedness as oppositional.
