imagiLabs is an EdTech startup based in Stockholm, on a mission to equip and empower girls to engage with tech. We created the imagiCharm, a programmable smart accessory, so that code and be brought to life and shown off! The imagiLabs app (iOS, Android, and web) is a truly social, inclusive platform for teenage girl coders to develop their skills. We also partner with schools, non-profits, and coding companies to bring groups of students our innovative coding curriculum.

Free workshop: a 1.5 hour virtual session with us takes coders from lighting up one pixel at a time to making colorful animations in the imagiLabs app. Ideal for kids 9-16, but fun for all ~ learn the basics of Python with our creative coding tools!

Type: Interactive (60 mins); Python level: Beginner; Domain level: Beginner
