Regan’s remarks from Lunch for the Girls 2017

Regan

My name is Regan Fulton, I’ve been a Girls Inc. Member since age five. Yesterday was my birthday. I’m ten years old.  Being a Girls Inc. girl means I get to participate in a lot of different programs and clubs. I’m in soccer, robotics, sparks and my favorite – the coding club. Last year, Ms. Beth was signing up girls for this club. She started with ten-year-olds for her first session and I was only nine. I really wanted to be a part of the club and I knew that I was smart and good enough to be with those older girls. I find coding very fun because you get to use all four subjects of science technology, engineering, and Math.  During the coding club we programed Sphero’s and ran them through different obstacle courses, coded bracelets with our names on them for Valentine’s Day, programmed an EV3 Mindstorm robot during Lego League Club and played scratch games. I really like playing coding games. My goal is to keep practicing and getting better in coding because when I go to college I want to be a teacher. I want to teach people what coding is and why it’s important for our future.  So, if anyone in this crowd today would like to come and help us continue to learn how to code please e-mail Ms. Emily (emwaja@girlsincomaha.org) because we are looking to grow our coding team. Without teachers we can’t grow. So please, come code with us.

Thank you for believing in our coding future.
