New! Technology Entrepreneurship
New this year, we will be working with the LocoRobo team to provide girls an experience in Technology Entrepreneurship. Students will be immersed in the process of taking an idea to product, while developing skills for collaboration, being creative and critical thinking. Sessions will include concepts in market research, coding with sensors, product design and web design.
By the conclusion of the camp, students will have gained an entrepreneurial experience to enable to become leaders of technology-driven innovations in 2019 and beyond, while piquing their interest in STEAM-related topics.
