Help your girl discover her inner engineer!
Girls Inc. will be hosting their annual Girls Inc. Day on Saturday, April 25 with the Purdue Women in Engineering Program.
The 2015 Girls Inc. Day will engage 60 girls, ages 9-16, in a full-day exploration of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). We have partnered with Women in Engineering Program (WIEP) at Purdue University to fill the day with hands-on activities, career exploration, a campus tour, and mentorship by female engineering students.
Activities will allow girls to spend their day coding using the Raspberry Pi.
- The Raspberry Pi is a low cost, credit-card sized computer that plugs into a computer monitor or TV, and uses a standard keyboard and mouse. It is a capable little device that enables people of all ages to explore computing, and to learn how to program in languages like Scratch and Python.
- Girls will learn how to code their own video games, invent new musical instruments, and even create pictures that light up.
- We hope that these activities will encourage girls to explore the STEM field of study and show them that girls can be engineers too!
This event is full at this time.
