About this event

Empathy and Game Design with Eileen Krepkovich, research scientist and biomedical engineer at Barron Associates. This workshop focuses on using empathy as part of game design. Learn about the design thinking process, and how it can be used for designing many things - from video games to medical devices. Your will be used to improve a game currently in design!

The Tech-Girls Online Workshop series is geared toward girls in 5th through 8th grade. The idea is to offer fun, hands-on computer science activities and access to female role models in computing careers providing opportunities for adolescent girls to understand what they can do with CS and to aspire to CS-related careers. We are excited to be part of a study through the University of Virginia that will help us look at the impact of this program.
