Girls Interested in Robotics Lego and Scratch
“GIRLS” is a face-to-face and online hybrid workshop for middle school girls to learn the basics of programming and get hands-on experience with Lego Robots. They will learn about the building blocks of an algorithm, Scratch programming, and how to use the Lego MINDSTORMS EV3 software. The girls will be instructed by university students and middle school teachers who aim to inspire the girls and give them confidence in their ability to join computer-related fields. On the last day of the program, the girls will show their parents what they have learned in hope of inspiring them as well.
