Level 2: Hackergal Junior Programmer
We are excited to introduce Level 2: Hackergal Junior Programmer, a new coding level, on Hackergal Hub! Level 2 is a project-based level, focused on creating an interactive board game that explores new topics with every lesson. Over the course of 9 lessons, Hackergals gain an understanding of the evolution of board games to more advanced digital gaming technologies and explore new commands. This fun and innovative level will help cultivate coding concepts for Hackergals in grades 6-9!
