Girls Know Tech

An Immersive Tech Experience

Campers explore, dream, and create in an environment just for girls.

 

Led by female instructors, campers begin the week working on  LEGO®  engineering and robotics projects from cats to thrill rides, and design two games using Scratch coding.  Then, campers team up to create a stop-motion animation video, and learn about circuits & electronics through hands-on building and a DIY electronic craft bracelet. 

  • Girl-oriented program

  • Female instructors with tech backgrounds

  • Wide coverage of tech: Robotics, Coding, Electronic Maker Project, Video Production

  • Opportunity for developing team tech skills on several projects

What's Special about this Camp?

Robotics Engineering & Coding 

Campers create a variety of LEGO WeDo robots while exploring sensors and mechanisms. Then, they program the movements and display of each robot, so students can see in a tangible way how their code creates action.  Block code includes loops and if-then conditionals.

Coding Skills through Game Making

Campers design two fun games - a pet care computer game and a restaurant game. We use Scratch, a visual programming language, and teach about variables, loops, conditionals, and functions.  Scratch is a great way to experiment with coding before moving on to text-based languages like Python.

Students team up to create a stop-motion short with LEGO® components and special effects software.  Teams use an ipad® and learn about movie-making and editing.

Team Skills & Video Production

Electronics and Maker Crafts

Campers explore circuits and electronics while creating a take-home wearable LED craft.  This maker project teaches about electronic components and electricity flow, while also allowing for design creativity.
