Girls in STEM: Tech Trek @ NMHU #makereducation

2015 07 14 16 24 29 300x300

Thank you so much to Alice for writing in about the AAUW Tech Trek camp, which is a STEM focused camp for 8th grade girls. Alice writes:

AAUW Tech Trek is a week-long camp for girls held on the campus of New Mexico Highlands University from July 12 – 18, 2015. The Camp introduces girls in the 8th grade from all over New Mexico to different STEM areas. We presented Workshops that were fun introductions to electronics through e-textiles.

Girls in our Workshops created bookmarks that lit up! One girl told us that it would have been perfect on a recent car trip with her family. The bookmark would have enabled her to read without (the overhead light) disturbing the driver, her dad.

Your products are invaluable in the making of fun projects to get kids interested in electronics, and science in general!

On Monday and Tuesday, July 13 and 14th, at Tech Trek @ NMHU in beautiful Las Vegas, NM, Alice, Jan and Patrick presented the Workshop, “Lighten Up: Using Light in Designs“. It was a brief introduction to electronics using e-textiles. We had a lot of fun!

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
