Description

Class 1: Storytelling – Bring Your Imagination to Life

Through our interactive activities girls explore what role characters and stories play in the video game and get an opportunity to create their own character and draw a storyboard.

Class 2: Pixel Art – Once Upon A Pixel Time

During this tutorial, girls transform their drawn characters into digital characters using Pixel Art. It demonstrates how creativity and drawing skills can be applied in the world of digital technology.   

Class 3: Game Design – Design Your Digital World

After having created their digital characters, girls immerse themselves into the world of Game Art. They play with different layouts, colours and objects to design their own unique video game.

Class 4: Game Development – Construct Your Own Game In Minutes

Following the design of their own digital world and characters, this tutorial introduces girls to the basis of video game programming and they will have fun playing with algorithms to bring their characters alive.

Not only is Empowerment Lab fighting against inequity and injustice, they are offering an amazingly interesting and fun course in technology for teenage girls. I haven't heard of a course quite like theirs, that offers the full concept-to-website flow, including learning graphic design tools. Amazing job!

My daughter attended the recent Empowerment Lab course. She had taken several 'coding for girls' classes before, but she didn't really like any of them. Her experience with Empowerment Lab was overwhelmingly positive...She learned graphic design and how to build a real website in one single weekend, and she proudly shared the website link with family and friends. What was also very interesting, especially for teenage girls, was how the lab taught that images are manipulated in media and on social media. It is easier for girls to have a positive body image when they understand that the images they see in the media every day are actually being manipulated. This lesson was well reinforced by the girls who learned to manipulate photos themselves with Photoshop.

First of all, a huge thank you to the Empowerment Lab team! Maelyse is absolutely delighted with the internship. She had a great time, is proud of the skills she learned and spent a fair amount of time showing us what she had learned. The pace and number of hours was perfect, the support very professional. We wish you a very nice end of the year and good luck with your activities, thank you again!
