The purpose of the Image Processing Workshop was to provide a new perspective of engineering to high school girls as well as provide materials to learn how to code with processing. The workshop took place on November 28th at Team 5190’s build space.
Rida, our presenter, and host, taught the girls about how to code with Processing, a program that is a sketchbook and a language for learning how to code within the context of visual arts. The students learned the basics of how coding works by using variables, loops, and functions. After learning the students applied the knowledge by making Instagram-like filters and they learned how computer screens work during this part of the workshop.
Most of the students had no previous experience in coding and they after the workshop finished, all of them were said: “they would love to continue to learn how to code.”
Team 5190 continues to have a strong impact on their community and hopes to continue to inspire others to join the STEM community and become the leaders of tomorrow.
