This event has reached capacity. Sign up here to be the first to hear about new Maker Girls workshops.
MAKER GIRL WORKSHOPS
These workshops are a part of our Maker Girls initiative, a series of workshops and other events designed to inspire, engage and empower girls with an early interest in STEM-inspired projects. Our Maker Girls programs are open to all kids, regardless of gender identity.
Maker Girls: Healthy Inventions (virtual workshop via Zoom)
Monday, June 14, 4:00 – 5:30 pm
4th – 8th grade
How can we use STEM to make people healthier? In this workshop, participants will hear from STEM professionals about how they use their work to help individuals, communities, and entire populations become healthier. Then, participants will work in small groups to brainstorm and design solutions that tackle problems in different areas of health from medicine to wellness to community health.
Maker Girls includes an exciting line-up of free maker activities throughout Women’s History Month. Inspired by the careers of real women in STEM, you can prototype a technology that improves athletic performance, create a digital 3D model of a robot that explores the unknown, design a game, and more.
