Time: 8am – 3pm
“Girls Make STEM with Heart”, the IEEE Buenaventura fall STEM event for middle-school girls, will be on Saturday, October 9 at La Reina High School in Thousand Oaks. If you were involved in the 2019 event, you know what a wonderful experience it was for the students, parents, and volunteers. If you were not involved, here is some background:
• Over 100 students attended eight different workshops covering programming, chemistry, electronics modules, robotics, solar energy, virtual reality, and wearables.
• We had at least two mentors per workshop. Each student was able to get plenty of attention.
• Parents attended a separate program that covered topics such as careers in STEM, how the young brain develops, and cybersecurity.
• At the end of the day, students got to show what they learned to their parents.
• La Reina graciously let us use their classrooms and cafeteria. Each classroom is equipped with a computer projector, movable tables and chairs, and Wi-Fi connectivity.
• Lunch and materials are provided by IEEE.
• See our Facebook page for photos and videos of the 2019 event.
