Event description

Description

To celebrate International Women’s Day, the City of Sydney Library is hosting a free girls invention workshop led by TechScience Australia. This is a space where girls will use different materials and code to create their own arcade game or robotic traffic lights and produce amazing animations using an LED matrix.

This 3-hour interactive session teaching basic coding and electronics is sure to power-up their passion and confidence in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics).

They’ll get a hands-on introduction to the incredible world of programmable electronics using Arduino, an open-source, accessible electronic platform that controls a variety of sensors and devices. The interactive Arduino can sense and control objects in the real world – like motion activated alarms and lights and smartphone-activated garage door openers.

Arduino is a popular tool for the Internet of Things and STEM/STEAM. All over the world, designers, engineers, students, developers and makers use Arduino to innovate in music, games, toys, smart homes, farming, autonomous vehicles, and more.

This free event is designed for girls 10 to 15 years, with no prior experience required. With a maximum of 20 participants, bookings are recommended. All equipment is provided.

Parents or guardians are required to stay in the library during the workshop.
