Team Innophos - McKinley Showcase

April 20, 2016 Baton Rouge, LA - Today, Team Innophos completed their semester long mentor session at McKinley Middle Magnet. For their final project and showcase, students designed moon landing pads. The pads were dropped from the first and second tier of their stairwell, and their marshmallow astronaut passengers had to survive the landing without falling out! This was a great amount of fun, and the students were all very successful and diverse with their designs. Thank you to our Innophos team and McKinley Middle for helping us with this project!

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.
