Broadmoor Showcase

Broadmoor Showcase

December 10, 2015 Baton Rouge, LA - Team Louisiana Technology Park completed their mentor lesson on vertical farming at Broadmoor Middle School. As their final showcase product, students created their own fully functioning vertical farm. The structure is composed of three levels and rooms. Each room has a light source and light diffusers to reflect light to the plants. The vertical farm also has its own fully functioning watering system. A pump sits in a reservoir of water and pumps water through tubes, dripping water on every plant. Congratulations students on this awesome vertical farm! Great work!

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.
