Aurora Public Schools recently hosted the seventh annual Girls Technology Camp! This day-long event linked sixth-grade female students from across the district with one another to engage in hands-on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) experiences.
In addition to sessions on coding, 3-D design and snap circuits, the girls enjoyed taking apart and reconstructing Netbooks. As an added treat, they had an opportunity to tinker with robots, a 3D printer and a green screen photo booth. Powerful women in STEM fields led the workshops and reminded students that females can do anything they put their minds to.
We thank the APS Information Technology and Educational Technology departments for organizing such a lively event to empower our girls! Students left energized and motivated to pursue STEM careers. Some students even earned Digital Badges, credentials that will bring them one step closer to their dreams.
