Code Art

About the Company:

Code/Art is a nonprofit dedicated to increasing the number of girls studying computer science by delighting and inspiring them with the creative possibilities of computer programming.

The number of women majoring in computer science (CS) has been decreasing since the 1980s. A big reason for this is the lack of early coding programs that feel welcoming to girls.

We envision a world where computer science education is as accessible to girls as to boys, a world in which girls are introduced to programming at the same age as boys, and girls are taught computer science through a creative, social curriculum that matches the way they learn and lays the foundation for them to compete for in-demand technology jobs.

Position Description:

Be part of a team of 15college students pair teaching creative coding in the classroom! This fall Code/Art is training K-12 art teachers from 30+ local public schools to lead four (4) simple creative coding lessons with their students. Lessons include coding a self-portrait in JavaScript, designing a 3D “sculpture” in Tinkercad, and creating a donutcostume game and a Jackson Pollock art generator in Scratch.As a Creative Coding Teaching Intern, you will be trained in the same four lessons as the teachers as well as in how to teach virtually over Zoom.
