Women's Python Robotics Club

We plan to create an environment where girls can thrive without the pressure of a classroom full of boys. The robotics club is Brantley's first step in getting girls interested and educated in computing science. We plan on usingScribbler robots to teach the Python language which is a great pre-ap language. In the long run, we hope to persuade more females to choose careers in computer science, and take their deserved place right next to the most powerful of male programmers. Move over Bill Gates, flocks of knowledge hungry girls may soon be overthrowing male's dominant position in the computer science field.
