Check out the video below, then visit their website to learn more about the program. I need to see if there is a similar program in Baton Rouge for my daughter Autumn.
From the website:
“Electric Girls is a 12-week education program for girls ages 9-14 in New Orleans. Using a mentorship structure, we teach girls to become leaders and role models in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). Girls come away with a new set of hard skills (soldering, drilling, building circuits, etc.) and soft skills (perseverance, curiosity, leadership, self-motivation).”
Watch for Maya Ramos in the video. (She is Robin Ramos’ daughter. Robin is a good friend and colleague, and the lead writer/teacher of A Story of Units.) Maya studies music in New Orleans when she isn’t building electrical circuits. You can listen to Maya’s piano playing in her band “Spare Change” by visiting their Facebook page.
