Coded Embroidery

Participants learn on how to create coded embroidery partners using Turtle Stitch platform. Turtlestitch is based on a browser-based educational programming language (Snap!) to generate patterns for embroidery machines. It is easy to use, requiring no prior knowledge in programming, yet powerful in creating nowels patterns for embroidery. She Codes for Change also uses the platform not only to teach coded embroidery but also to inspire young girls to like mathematics, as well as expose and engage them on the fun side of mathematics and to express themselves through patterns.
