First Day of Mentoring - Capitol

First Day of Mentoring - Capitol

November 20, 2015 Baton Rouge, LA - Team Louisiana Economic Development started mentoring at Capitol Middle School today. Team LED's lesson will be on engineering recycled race cars. For the first lesson, they covered the engineering process and students engineered a notecard tower that had to support a weight. All the towers were successful, and it was a great first day of mentoring before Thanksgiving break. 

Happy Thanksgiving all! Keep up those STEM skills!

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.
