via Scientific American:
We all have the ability to create. To innovate. To make. The organization DIY (“Do-It-Yourself”) Girls is helping Latina girls embrace their inner maker to promote early engagement with technology, build self-confidence and support aspiration to careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).
DIY Girls’ mission is to increase girls’ interest in technology, engineering and the act of making through hands-on educational experiences. The after-school program allows girls to design and make toys, program their own video games, design creative inventions with conductive paint and make wearable electronics products, among many other activities.
Each Tuesday is EducationTuesday here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts about educators and all things STEM. Adafruit supports our educators and loves to spread the good word about educational STEM innovations!
