H/Experiences/Girl Scout Day Program: Robotics Badges 1-3

Girl Scout Day Program: Robotics Badges 1-3

Program for Cadettes

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.
