Girl Scouts of Greater New York is once again teaming up with Vidcode, an online interactive software, for our Council’s participation in “Hour of Code”, a worldwide movement that helps kids learn about the fantastic world of computer programming. Completing YOUR Hour of Code through your troop or at home? Pledge to complete one hour of code, and represent Girl Scouts in this global movement!
The tutorial is now live!
Complete the Hour of Code at any time during Computer Science Education Week (12/9-12/15) and earn a patch and certificate. Our goal is for as many girls as possible to participate by using our one-hour tutorial to practice coding.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
