Event description

Description

From the buildings we live in, to the cars that move you forward, to the products that enrich our everyday lives – have you ever wondered how things are made in the real world?

On Saturday, August 17th, 2019, we invite #FUTURETECHBOSSES to join us for a day of hands-on workshops focused on 3-D design and printing.

In this 6-hour workshop, Tech Divas will be introduced to the theme of “Afrofuturism” and how it is reflected in the various design concepts found in the Black Panther film. Participants will be stimulated by all the possibilities that Vibranium has to offer and channel that energy towards inventing products to solve everyday challenges. Participants will use a Tinkercard to transform their ideas into 3D models and a 3D printer to prototype their final creation. They will also explore other advanced technologies to make their invention fully functional and marketable.

All BGC events are geared towards introducing participants to the technological universe and encouraging them to pursue careers as Tech Creators and Entrepreneurs. This event is intended for girls ages 10-17. No prior computing experience is necessary.

Check-in begins at 9:00 AM. The event starts promptly at 10:00 AM. Participants do not need to bring their laptops.

Scholarships: Limited scholarships are available by applying HERE. The deadline to apply for scholarships is Friday, August 2nd.

Volunteer: Want to help out? We are in need of VOLUNTEERS! https://blackgirlscode.ivolunteer.com/bgcbos_wakanda3d_htn
