Creative Coding

Creative Coding is a 10-week series of workshops taking place in the spring period at Chalmers. It is initiated by the department of Computer Science and Engineering and the purpose is for younger girls to have fun and experiment with code and music. The project ends with a music performance on stage in Gothenburg. 

See the report about Creative Coding from SVT Väst

What is Creative Code?

Did you know that coding and music actually go together? Are you a girl between 11-15 years old and curious about how this works? If so, don´t hesitate to join us for a 10-week project that will end with you performing the music you have actually made through coding!

Creative Code is free of charge and everybody who identifies as a girl is welcome to join. The workshops are in English.

Why should I participate?

This is an excellent opportunity for you to find out more and learn about both coding and art (music and light) and how these two areas can work together. You will get to know other girls with similar interests and meet people working and studying at Chalmers. You will get a unique sneak peek at how it would be to study at Chalmers and perhaps find out if the area of computer science could be something for you.

How does it work?

The project consists of workshops where you will be creating music through coding together with other girls in smaller groups. Each group will have a mentor and a teacher that will support you in the process. You don´t need to have any prior knowledge in coding – as long as you are interested in meeting other people and doing experiments you are a perfect fit for joining Creative Code. The 10 weeks will end with a concert where you will play the music you made through coding.

The workshops will be in English and all you need is to bring your own school computer.
