Girls are having fun with STEM this summer!
‘Girls Let’s Build’ is a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) program initiated by the International Women’s ThinkTank (IWTT). The goal is to increase the girls’ interest in STEM through practical programs and hands-on activities.
SUMMER CAMP 1
June 23-27, 2014 – 9:00AM – 12:00PM (Atlanta Tech Village, Buckhead, Atlanta)
Mechanical Engineering: Let’s make Toys: The Junior Mechanical Engineering Toys camp introduces our youngest engineers to fundamental concepts of energy, materials, and movement. Students explore and construct different toys throughout this unit, including spinners, magical boomerang cans, wind-up whirligigs, and more.
SUMMER CAMP 2
July 14-18, 2014 – 9:00AM – 12:00PM (Atlanta Tech Village, Buckhead, Atlanta)
LEGO® Robotics: Amazing Mechanisms: This camp is a perfect mixture of fun and learning, using LEGO® WeDo™ Robots. Using LEGO® bricks, students build a dancing bird, a smart spinner, and a drumming monkey. They also learn how to program and operate their creations using a laptop computer.
Both Camps have a limit of 16 girls per class. This to provide the maximum attention from the teachers.
