Visitacion Valley Middle School’s IGNITE chapter is looking for a diverse group of women for beginning one-on-one robotics support as girls and non-binary students participate in a short robotics workshop using Lego Mindstorm! Students will be reverse engineering the code already programmed into the robot by shining a light on the robot and seeing what happens. They will then explore how Genetic Engineers use robots to study cells!
The chapter is also looking for women in all STEM fields to tell their story on a panel. This chapter would particularly love to hear from mathematics students and professionals and all STEM professionals who are making a positive difference in their world using STEM.
The students will be able to leave with an understanding of how the robot they interacted with is like a cell and with an inspiration to pursue their passions!
Aptos Middle School’s IGNITE chapter will be participating in a coding workshop and panel! This is Aptos’ 3rd IGNITE event this year! When girls hear women’s stories they can become motivated to sign up for STEM classes and pursue STEM careers!
Thurgood Marshall High School’s IGNITE chapter is looking for a diverse group of STEM professionals for one-on-one maker support as girls participate in a maker workshop! Students will be using raspberry pis to build and program a Wildlife Camera Trap. The chapter is also looking for self-identified women and non-binary folks working in STEM to tell their story on a panel. When girls hear women’s stories they can become motivated to sign up for STEM classes and pursue STEM careers!
