Tufts University has a new club this year called Tufts Girls of Code and the group would love to connect with Medford Girl Scout troops. Tufts Girls of Code is organized by Dr. Laney Strange and she works with a dynamic group Tufts Computer Science undergrad women, to teach coding, confidence, and creativity to girls from around the Boston area.
Tufts Girls of Code would look forward to organizing a workshop for interested Girl Scout Troops in Medford. Dr. Strange took at look at the Girl Scout badge requirements and she identified the following badges as ones that the Tufts Girls of Code could help troops earn:
- Brownies – Grades 2 and 3: Computer Expert badge (Click here for the requirements.)
- Juniors – Grades 4 and 5: Entertainment Technology badge, specifically Step 2 “Dig into Video Game Development.” This step has the option of creating an interactive story or game using a downloadable coding program, such as MIT’s Scratch or Carnegie Mellon’s Alice.

- Seniors – Grades 9 and 10: Website designer badge.
