Sherwood Showcase

Sherwood Showcase

December 15, 2015 Baton Rouge, LA - Team Louisiana Women in Technology completed their mentor project at Sherwood Middle Academic Magnet School today. The project centered on creating an efficient aid drop package that could withstand an impact from a hight. For the student showcase, Mrs. Arceneaux's robotics class programmed robots to carry and deliver a 3D printed aid package. The students build a course and a ramp for their robots to navigate, and tested their 3D printed aid drop packages from a significant hight. 

Congratulations to this awesome mentor team and great group of students! Great job everyone. Check out more photos from the day 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.
