March 28th , 3-5 pm (no school) - Digital Portfolios - the girls will build their digital portfolios (they don’t need to be published, if you don’t want them on the web yet) but it will be a place for our girls to document their experience.
Subsequent meetings will then move to Sundays from 3-5pm. Activities include:
E-textiles (possible fee of $10/per person for materials)
Arduino kits to do a few starter projects (materials provided for the day)
Songs in Scratch
Tinker - design logos/charms/something - to be printed on 3D printer
No experience needed. Just the willingness to engage and learn. Bring your own laptop - or let us know if you need to borrow one.
Much of the reason for starting this and seeing how far this goes is taken from a recent inspiration of CEO & Founder Reshma Saunjani recently interviewed on the Daily Show. Leslie Aaronson also works as a computer science educator and often sees the first stumbling block to coding is the fear to try or the concern that it will be hard. This club is meant to be fun and open ended. The first few meetings are about experimentation, building community and building the confidence to try new things.
We are in the early stages of making this club a commitment and any questions, suggestions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to us.
