IEEE Buenaventura Hosts “Girls Make Tech with Heart” STEM Event

On October 7, 2017 IEEE Buenaventura Section hosted “Girls Make Tech with Heart”. About 100 middle school girls participated in nine different workshops, learning about coding, electronics, imaging, light, robotics, solar energy, and virtual reality. Separate parent workshops discussed aging gracefully with technology, jobs of the future, and the young female brain.

Selected photos from the event are on our Facebook page. The event was funded by IEEE Foundation and IEEE-USA, and was held free of charge at La Reina High School and Middle School in Thousand Oaks.

Thank you to everyone who made the event a success!
