We were excited to learn that the DC Chapter of Black Girls Code will be hosting a workshop at Brookland’s Noyes School on Saturday, June 11. From the event page:

During this workshop, participants and their parents will explore coding fundamentals combining circuits, and Makey Makeys or littleBits as we introduce The Internet of Things (IoT): a network of physical objects and devices that can be controlled with a series of sensors, electronics, and software used to control objects in the physical world…Our Tech Divas and their parent partners will learn a little bit about circuits and get to jump into the making and designing together as a team in this introductory IoT class for girls ages 6-13 and their parents / guardians. The workshop is designed to encourage student (and parent!)-driven learning, as participants think analytically, design, play and code in real-time.

Sounds awesome! As of now, it looks like the slots are filled, but sponsoring a girl or parent, or volunteering is always an option, as well as checking out future Black Girls Code events.
