Recently, I had been thinking about ways we can get more people into the Energize program (since I was previously the only member in 10th grade or below, as well as the only girl). Since everyone has a lot of unexpected extra time due to COVID-19, I recruited some girls I know and set up an online "class". This week, I began teaching them about Python and Data Science so that they would be prepared to start working with Energize.
About a week ago, I talked to Mr. Navkal and began recruitment. I ended up with a group of 5 girls, all in eighth and ninth grade, eager to learn or review Python and join Energize! Since then, we have had three class sessions over Zoom. As a syllabus, we have been using Codecademy's Learn Python 3 course. I'm excited to continue running the class and see where this goes!
