The day starts with registration, then opening ceremony and a short keynote speech from a Math, Science or Engineering professional:
Students attend 3 different workshops (below are some samples):
Citrius Fruit Battery — Students made a battery using oranges and lemons to power a small LCD display.
Computer Repair and Networking — During this hands-on workshop girls had the opportunity to learn about the internal hardware of a computer. They dismantled a working computer, identified and discussed the internal components, and rebuilt the system.
Lego Mindstorms — Girls discovered the many robots that we use every day. They built, programmed, and ran a real LEGO™ robot, then participated in a robot war!
Ubiquitous Electronics — Students built a small electronic toy using soldering equipment.
Fun with Science — An interactive hands-on presentation demonstrating basic principles of science.
- Conducting electricity: even through your body.
- Liquid Nitrogen experiments — demonstrations on how things can be chemically frozen.
Half of the students will attend a career fair:
While the other half has lunch (and then you switch):
