SmartGurlz

"There is no limit to what we, as women, can accomplish"

Stanford 10/13/18

This was the debut of the new  SmartGurlz program, and all the girls learned a lot about programming and enjoyed it as well. This session was successful but meanwhile we learned a lot about what could be improved for future classes.

In this workshop, we taught 6 curious girls about coding using blocks and had them code their SmartGurlz siggys to drive and complete missions by coding. They were all very intelligent and got through the whole curriculum. Two Stanford students observed our learning environment for a project they had to do and interviewed us about our team history and plans for the future.

Thirteen girls showed up to this workshop looking for a challenge in the STEM field. While many were ahead of the game, some struggled. We gave those struggling extra attention and had those ahead be more independent and take on challenges.

Oakland 12/22/18

Instead of hosting another SmartGurlz class in Palo Alto, we decided to expand our influence to areas that have a more limited access to resources. We hosted a SmartGurlz class in Oakland in the Golden Gate Branch of the Oakland library. There, we taught 12 girls the basis of coding using SmartGurlz products.

San Jose 10/19/19

New season, new classes! To kick off our new season, we hosted a SmartGurlz robotics class in San Jose. We partnered with Casilleja to advertise this class. 13 people came to the class, eager to learn about coding. After teaching the kids about the basics of the programming software, like how to move forward, set the speed, and move backwards, we allowed them to complete challenges at their own pace.
