Girl Day UT: Get Makey With It
Girl Day at UT Austin, including Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day is a free event for K-8 students held on the Cockrell School of Engineering and Natural Sciences complexes on The University of Texas at Austin campus February 24th, 2018 from 12 to 5 pm. Over 8,000 girls are expected to participate in over 150 free-flowing hands-on activities and demonstrations hosted by volunteers, student organizations, corporate partners and community organizations. Students get the chance to explore engineering, science, math, and technology at their own pace throughout the event.
ChickTech will be hosting a demo that will allow girls to get hands on experience with the Makey Makey . They will learn about circuitry and get a better understanding of how electricity travels through unlikely things such as fruit, ink, and coins. Volunteers will be helping girls with the Makey Makey, teaching them how to use it and/or manning our table to answer questions about the program.
Stop on by to say hi, learn how to use the Makey Makey, and buy a ChickTech T-shirt for $20 (cash or card) or water bottle for $5.
