GirlsTech is all about empowering girls to confidently imagine, create, lead and achieve. Be the best future innovators we can be! Why GirlsTech? Women make up half of the national workforce, but hold just 25% of the jobs in technical or computing fields according to national research. Let’s get girls involved!
Let’s learn to code! Learn to build games, apps, websites and harness the ability to craft your vision. Our goal: to help girls learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively — essential 21st century skills. The Tech component adds the fundamentals of technology in a game-based program. Tech topics include; parts of a computer, how does it work, configuring a network, online identity, and search logic.
In this Lab program innovation and design drive solutions. Programs activities have an emphasis on innovation, the design process, problem solving, prototype & testing through a series of challenge projects. Let’s be hands on inventors to design, prototype and create manufactured works. All elements in the lab are used including robotics, microcomputers, electronics, 3D Printer, digital manufacturing carving tools. Lab fee included.
Design and build robotics that race, dance, rise to the challenge of search & rescue, perform stunts that amaze and amuse. We will customize our bots, experiment with sensors and remote controls and learn the essentials of bot design and structure.
