Event Details

During this workshop, participants and their parents will explore coding fundamentals combining circuits, and Makey Makeys or littleBits as we introduce The Internet of Things (IoT): a network of physical objects and devices that can be controlled with a series of sensors, electronics, and software used to control objects in the physical world.

Our Tech Divas and their parents will learn a little bit about circuits and get to jump into the making and designing together as a team in this introductory IoT class for girls ages 6-13. The workshop is designed to encourage student (and parent!)-driven learning, as participants think analytically, design, play, and code in real-time.

All BGC workshops are geared towards introducing participants to the technological universe and encouraging them to pursue careers as tech creators and entrepreneurs.

This class is designed for girls ages 6-13 and parents of all ages. No prior computing experience is necessary.

Check-in begins at 9:15AM. The event starts promptly at 10:00AM. Participants don’t need to bring their laptops and both lunch and light snacks will be provided.


Parents may register with multiple students (of same age group), but students may only register with one parent. NOTE: All students must register with a parent. Space is limited so sign up soon to secure your spot!
