Special Thanks to Microsoft for the swag bags
given to all eGirl Power participants!
The Microsoft field trip started with a scavenger hunt in the Microsoft store on 5th Avenue that set the stage for learning to code with Kodu, a visual programming language made specifically for creating games.
eGirl Power participants learned how to build their own world in Kodu as they created a landscape and added characters.
eGirl Power members learned how to:
- • Develop and build a Kodu landscape
- • Add elements like buildings, water, trees, and characters
- • Program character interactions and movements
The group enjoyed pizza afterwards :)
