I have a little bit of previous knowledge on coding from my work at the Science Centre. In my position at the Science Centre I develop programming where some of that programming comes from a grant which encourages my team and I to develop coding workshops for elementary and high school students. Through these workshops I have created simple video games, animations and web development using the basics of coding languages such as Blockly and Python.

My name is Laura Githegi and I am a 23 year old education student in my second year and this is my first ever educational blog! My passion to teach came from my current Science Educator position at the Saskatchewan Science Centre where I have ongoing projects! Coming from a mixed cultural background, I enjoy learning about new cultures and have a passion to travel, learning about my heritage on the way. I hope to learn non-traditional ways of teaching from different cultures and bring those aspects into my classroom. Looking forward to what the future has to offer!
