Team Elektra for Girls Grades 5-8

The brilliant ones! A celebration of creative problem-solving and empowerment, YHA Team Elektra all-girls program explores how the combination of computer science and digital expression can make a difference in the local and global community. As a grassroots organization, Team Elektra members develop interactive stories using Scratch, and collaborate on inspirational videos and websites about meaningful issues. They learn how to use code to create a powerful message that communicates to the world who we are and the positive change that we seek. Following the lead of successful women shaping the future in tech, YHA Team Elektra unleashes confidence and life skills in a week full of creativity, design, color, and fun. Wait until you see what we create with code!
