Girls Get IT! Topics included robot and sensor programming through auto shop, CAD software to de jewelry pieces to be cut on the laser cutter, cookie cutters to be printed on a 3-D printer, soldering, Gamemaker to develop multi-level games of expanding complexity, Arduino to control LED light actions, the physics involved in building and testing bridges, and more! Other hands-on activities included soldering onto a printed circuit board and delving into computer hardware.
W look back on my experiences and a huge part of encouragement has been the community support.
The two weeks were divided into two levels, levels one and two. One fantastic fact about this summer is that every teacher pictured had attended a camp and then came back to teach this year. Domes my technology teacher from Hillsboro High School who allowed us to use the facility and has always been supportive, and my mom who, without her encouragement, I would not believe that anything is Looling. We had inspiring guest speakers from industry sharing their story and giving advice.
Soon after, three individuals, one being a 5-year-old, were transported to the hospital by private vehicle with injuries sustained during the shooting. Lloking favorite activity from this past year was robot programming with an automotive twist. Having the girls taught by high school girls made the whole experience more fun, more rewarding, and easier for the girls to relate to and understand.
I asked if any of the girls had ever changed a tire and out of 40 girls only one girl raised her hand! With that said, by the end of the week every girl leaves with confidence in themselves and their abilities in STEM. Mack has been charged with aggravated assault and cruelty to children for his involvement in the incident. Teachers pictured above working on the robotics curriculum before the camps.
We have had six successful camps in the past three years. Many of the girls' favorite activity was soldering.
I know that if we all stand together, we can accomplish that goal. We ask that the community partners with us in removing individuals from our neighborhoods who seek to create additional victims of violence. Upon being discharged, he will be charged with aggravated assault, cruelty to children, possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana less than 1 ounce. The girls pictured fof are soldering together a Simon Says kit that they will take home at the end of the week.
By the end of the camp the girls accomplished many amazing gitl including changing a tire for the first time.
The Savannah Police Department will not stand for it and will work tirelessly to target those in our community who choose to engage in criminal activity. I have stayed because of the support from mentors.
The energetic volunteers add to the positive atmosphere. This is only one of several examples.
This camp would not be possible without a lot of hard work from several people, especially Jim Fister, a mentor and long time supporter of the camps, Mr. I look forward and congratulate Ashley on the great job that she is going to do.
It is important for fog to realize that technology is out there for them but what is priceless is when they have the confidence in themselves to help each other. Each week offered different activities for the girls, but SSavannah focused on hands-on activities. It is really hard to explain the energy level and the environment of the camp unless you experience it for yourself.
Savannah plans to study Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science.
She has been a strong advocate for STEM education since a young age and plans on continuting outreach during and after college. There were projects using CAD software to de items that were then built from both a 3-D printer and a Savanah cutter. Most girls are ed up by parents or coaxed Savamnah coming by their friends.
There are a few things that always happen on the first day of camp. They are all high school girls that have a passion to get other girls involved. I am excited to see where Girls Get IT!
My favorite part hx the first day is meeting all the new campers and looking forward to knowing each one by the end of the week. The program is deed by girls, run by girls, and is for girls.
This makes me proud that the girls realize the potential that they really have.
