Broadmoor Science Night is a BLAST!

Broadmoor Science Night is a BLAST! 

February 18, 2016 Baton Rouge, LA - Broadmoor Middle School held its annual Science Night this Thursday evening. The event featured a variety of booths set up by different organizations with a fun assortment of science projects and experiments for the middle school students and their families. STEMup BR set up a booth where students could design, engineer, and test marshmallow sling shots. This lesson taught principles of force, motion, and the importance of trying again and experimenting in the engineering design process. Kids had a blast building their own slingshots and testing them by shooting at different targets. A great and successful night for Broadmoor Middle!

4th Annual IT Girls Creative Coding Day

Last week on St. Patrick’s Day, seventy girls representing middle schools all over town were lucky enough to attend the fourth annual IT-Girls Creative Computing event.  Sponsored by Louisiana Women in Technology and supported by STEMup Baton Rouge and the Foundation for East Baton Rouge School System, the goal of the program is to introduce girls to the field of information technology by exploring programming tools like Scratch and JavaScript (p5.js).  In addition to the fun coding challenges that included game and web design products, the girls were also exposed to over 30 volunteers representing either IT companies or career fields.  Big thanks goes out to key sponsors who included Louisiana Tech Park, Geocent, Sparkhound, General Informatics, New Aperio, NexusLA, Giraphics, K&J Home Services and the Foundation for East Baton Rouge School System.  We also wish to thank Costco, Bet-R and Whole Foods who supplied snacks for the day.
