Week 0: Welcome to WorkIt!

On Saturday, February 10th, we held our first WorkIt workshop. This was the beginning of the first NCWIT-funded program in this region of Nevada. At this first workshop, we learned about algorithms, binary, computational thinking, and introduced the Scratch graphical programming language. Still, we’ve got a long way to go! The next workshop is this Saturday, February 24th at 12:30PM. This upcoming Saturday, we’ll expand our knowledge in Scratch and relate this information to introductory ideas in the programming language C.
