September 29 - November 24, 2019
As part of our Girls in STEM Initiative, Whitaker Center offers Girls in STEM Sundays for girls in grades 4 - 8. These workshops are designed and lead by our stellar Education staff, who help participants connect with real-world applications of STEM through design, programming, coding, engineering, and more. All workshops are held from 12:00 - 2:00 PM at the Camp Hill GIANT Community Room for just $5 per girl!
Fall 2019 Workshops:
|September 29||Coding Challenges with Sphero||Girls will work to successfully code their Spheros through different obstacles and games!|
|October 13||Kinetic Sculpture||In this STEAM-focused class, girls will learn about the kinetic sculptures made by artists in the 20th century. Then they will have the opportunity to design their own!|
|October 27||Rube Goldberg and Incredible Chain Reactions||Cartoonist Rube Goldberg created thousands of complicated designs to solve simple problems. Girls will have an opportunity to build and use simple machines to create a chain reaction to make something happen.|
|November 10||Designing for Earthquakes||How do engineers and architects design structures with earthquakes in mind? This class will focus on ways of building in earthquake-prone areas and girls will test to see if their own creations can withstand one!|
|November 24||Fun with 3D Printing||Girls will learn about 3D printing, some fo the ways it is used today, and they will design and print their very own creation!|
