The Language of Databases-SQL
Targeted for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade girls
Attention Parents: Your daughter must bring her own laptop to this event.
Description: Run by TechGirlz. Maps help us understand the visual picture of the world. But has the entire world been mapped? Satellites capture images of the earth, but scientists are still trying to find a way to convert this image into meaningful information. The best way to recognize 'features' from a satellite image are still human eyes. In this workshop, students will learn how satellite images collected by various agencies around the world can be used to help humanity globally. Platforms like Tomnod and Openstreet offer an opportunity for volunteers (such as the participants in Techgirlz) who are not necessarily experts in coding or interpreting this information to contribute to critical missions such as mapping damage during Hurricane Matthew, or even recognizing roads in remote parts of Nepal and Africa.
Permission Slip Policy: We have gone paperless! For the current school year you must fill in the web form Permission Slip and submit it before you attend the Workshop. You can fill in the Permission Form here. If we do not have you on file as completed this web form document, we cannot grant you entrance.
Attendance Policy: Due to our space limitations, we ask that you only register your child if you are positive they can attend. Cancellation of two or more events will result in automatically being placed on the Wait List for future events.
Thank you for your anticipated cooperation.
