Talking tech can be as comfortable for middle-school age girls as talking about friends and fashion. From learning about sensors to delving into the pixels behind Photoshop work, these subjects are the focus of a free TechGirlz tech workshop for girls in York, Saturday, April 9, at Martin Library.
Two sessions, focusing on Arduino Programming, will introduce participants to projects they can make with sensors and light displays. In “LittleBits,” girls can make their own electronic “appliances” with magnets or learn about these fundamental tools using Photoshop. Lisa Howald, youth services librarian, worked in partnership with TechGirlz to bring the experience to York.
The TechGirlz workshop is presented by GIG REV in partnership with Martin Library, United Fiber & Data, and York College of Pennsylvania. This program is funded in part by the Pennsylvania Department of Community & Economic Development’s Broadband Outreach and Aggregation Fund.
