DIY Girls Aims to Empower Girls to Facilitate Innovation @DIYGirls #NationOfMakers #WeekofMaking @whitehouseostp
DIY Girls allows girls an opportunity to make within a supportive community. From DIY Girls:
DIY Girls uses a three-pronged program approach that integrates engagement, capacity building, and continuity to ensure girls’ success. We offer after-school and in-school programs, as well as workshops that provide hands-on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math)experiences for girls. Girls learn technical skills and apply them by creating their own creative projects and inventions.
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.
