Meet Code Park Volunteer Hannah!
Meet Hannah, one of our Google CS First Storytelling Club volunteers. Through teaching creative workshops at Code Park, Hannah not only taught students how to solve problems but also showed them the fun and innovation through technologies. Today, she will share her story with Code Park and her journey in software development.
How did you become involved as a volunteer with Code Park?
I moved to Houston last September and enrolled in a coding bootcamp. I searched around for coding meetup groups to meet others in the industry, and found Code Park. I started volunteering on Thursdays at Gallegos Elementary School as soon as I completed my bootcamp.
How did you first get into coding?
What is an interesting side project you’re working on?
What is your favorite classroom experience so far?
We make sure to have time at the end of class for show and tell. The third graders often collaborate on projects and love sharing with their classmates! It's awesome seeing them building on concepts they've used before, and creating while having fun together. In Scratch, there is an option to share and discover projects, which allows us to remix the projects through cloning and adding new inputs. Some of our students really loved Fortnite, so they found some cool platform games that featured their favorite characters, and remixed them. It was super fun to see them demo the games and, of course, show off their dance moves from Fortnite.
