Girls Make Games, and organization that focuses on helping girls learn how to program and create video games through a series of workshops, hosted their first ever workshop in the White House.
The workshop was another facet of President Obama’s Computer Science for All Initiative. The point of the initiative is to bring coding and programming to schools around the country, so that children learn skills that could help them get a job.

The Girls Make Games group came from all over the country to participate in the workshop. They were treated to a tour of the White House before settling down to take part in some serious learning.
