      Do you want to explore coding fundamentals and engage in exciting tech-related activities with your Tech Diva?  Join Black Girls CODE for a parent-daughter workshop! 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 parents 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. The workshop is designed to encourage student (and parent!)-driven learning, as participants think analytically, design, play, and code in real-time. All BGC workshops are geared towards introducing participants to the technological universe and encouraging them to pursue careers as tech creators and entrepreneurs. This class is designed for girls ages 7-13 and adults of all ages. No prior computing experience is necessary.
