Fun with Finches!
October 13, 2018
In our October session, we explored basic robotics using Finch Robots. We used the Python programming language to make the Finches light up and move around. The participants then had fun trying to get their robot to successfully navigate a maze. After that, they explored the Finch's sensors and programmed their Finch to work as an alarm clock.

In our September session, we used the Python programming language to program a Rapsberry Pi with an Explorer Hat to make a lights out game, a minecraft thermometer and a buzzer activated by a gummy candy. The girls learned about basic programming constructs (sequence, selection and looping) and also how to wire basic circuits.
These Saturday classes are designed for girls in 6th through 10th grade. Each session will focus using technology to design and create a certain type of object. No experience is necessary. Girls may attend any or all of the classes but they must register for each session separately. Each session is limited to 20 girls. Check the schedule page for details.
Summer Camp 2018
In June 2018, we held our 6th annual Girls Create with Technology summer camp. The girls learned about coding and cybersecurity and, as always, built their own robots. Check out their creations on our Facebook and Instgram pages.
