What is CodeXX?

CodeXX is a computer programming course for girls. You will be learning to write computer programs using Alice software. We will be working with Alice version 3 in this course.

In Alice you design a 3D world for your story, animation or game.


Then you move to a scripting environment, where you drag and drop programming tiles to write the program that will control your world and make the objects move about.

One of the most important things you will learn in this course is Computational Thinking. This video will show you what computational thinking is, and why it is important.

 

The course is divided into levels to help you manage your learning. Start at Recruit level and then move up through the levels when you have mastered the content on the level you are on.

Why is it Called CodeXX?

As you may know, your body is a collection of cells. In the nucleus of each cell, the DNA molecule is packaged into thread-like structures called chromosomes. In humans, each cell normally contains 23 pairs of chromosomes. The 23rd pair, the sex chromosomes, differ between males and females. Males have an XY pair and females have XX.

This is a programming (coding) course for girls, hence the name CodeXX
