Show off Your Leadership Skills
Why is it important to have a day devoted to girls and empowerment? There are over 12 million girls K-12 in the US today. Many of these girls are engaging in activities and experiences that do not always foster support and guidance for each other. This Camp will allow for girls in the NYC- Bronx Area to come together to learn about exciting technology available to them as well as participate in team building activities to help foster support and leadership. The two-day camp is guided by Certified Educators (many women) who are leaders in their field and want to empower the upcoming female population.

A MaKey-MaKey is a small invention kit that comes with a MaKey-MaKey board, wires, alligator clips and a USB cable. You can take everyday objects and turn them into a touchpad that interacts with a computer program. Objects attached to the MaKey-MaKey become "buttons" that replace a basic keyboard or mouse. We will create experiments with our Makey Makey Boards, then they are ours to keep afterward!
