About this event

  • 4 hours
  • Mobile eTicket

Participants will get hands-on with makerspace technologies including 3D Modeling, 3D Printing, Electronics, Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality and see how they are used every day to make a difference in people's lives. The maker camp sessions will be run by UVA students who are part of the Women's Maker Program Residency. This camp is open to participants in 6th through 8th grade who identify as female or non-binary and is free of charge! Check out our last year’s program showcase for more information.

Camp objectives:

Research indicates that girls begin to lose confidence in their abilities and disconnect from STEM disciplines during the middle school years (see more information here). The Women’s Maker Program (a UVA library makerspace program) is partnering local non-profits Tech-Girls and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Virginia to engage with local middle school girls at this critical age to participate in a half-day maker camp designed and implemented by UVA Women’s Maker Program Residents and staff. We hope the camp will help educate middle school girls about gender equality issues in STEM, increase their interest and confidence in learning STEM, as well as bridge their experience gap in makerspace technologies that are widely used in STEM subjects.
