Glasgow Showcase - Bionic Arm

Glasgow Showcase - Bionic Arm 

December 15, 2015 Baton Rouge, LA - Team Trace Security wrapped up their mentor session at Glasgow Middle School. For their project, they led the students in designing and building a bionic arm. The arm was constructed out of wood and was powered by a hydraulic system. The students also engineered a circuit system, that would trigger a buzzer to go off when the arm touched something.

Congrats to all the students and mentors on a job well done! More photos below.

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.
