Girls in grades 6, 7 and 8 are invited to join in a Saturday morning of hands-on learning, fun and friendly competition at Woodlands Academy of the Sacred Heart's Robotics & Engineering 101 Workshop.
It's the third annual event hosted by the all-girls high school encouraging middle school girls to consider STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) courses in high school and then STEM careers later on.
Participants will engage in activities including:
programming using Scratch
constructing bettery-operated cars
a boat-building competition - with prizes
Studies showing that girsl often lose interest in STEM during the middle school years are one of the reasons why Woodlands Academy holds the workshop. Participants at these events, offered free of charge, work alongside current Woodlands students.
