Calling all tech-savvy Cadettes, earn ALL THREE Robotics badges at Da Vinci Science Center this fall! This one-of-a kind program will provide all the materials and skills necessary for your girls to become confident coders and persistent problem solvers. Each scout will receive guidance from a Da Vinci Science Center educator to write her own code and program her own Circuit Playground – an all-in-one micro controller (minicomputer). No experience necessary – we will all explore, experiment, and learn more about computers, coding, and robotics together.
This is a two-part program. Session 1 takes place on Saturday, Sept. 21 from 10 a.m.- 1 p.m. Session 2 takes place on Saturday, Nov. 16 from 9 a.m.- 12 p.m.
Day one we will explore how the Circuit Playground will work.
Scouts will go home and work on the playground with friends or independently.
There will be an optional drop in lab on Oct. 19 from 3-6 p.m. to trouble shoot their project.
On day two they will showcase their project here at the Science Center to fulfill the third badge in the series.
Siblings in attendance can explore the Science Center at the $9.50 group rate, but cannot participate in the program. All participants that are eligible for the group rate must be present when their group checks in and pay with group.
Girl Scouts visit the Da Vinci Science Center, explore its exhibit floor, and enjoy a variety of hands-on activities that help them earn a Scout award or a part of exclusive Da Vinci Science Center patch. Scouts may continue visiting the Center's exhibit floor after the program concludes.
