MacKenzie Trumbly at the 3D printer
Instructors from the University of Manitoba Wise Kidnetic Energy program are holding an all girl codemakers camp this week at McIsaac School. Camp Instructor Alyson Betz says it’s an introduction to coding for girls 13 to 15 so they have a bunch of different activities. She says they do a lot of stuff on laptops so yesterday they were doing 3D printing and also they’re going to be working with the robots called Cozmos which really show facial recognition and AI technology and they they’re also going to be programming on the computers with different software like processing and Arduino so introduction to coding is what they are doing.
There are eight girls attending the first girls coding camp held in Flin Flon by Women in Science and Engineering at the University of Manitoba along with their annual Kidnetic Energy Camp.
