The Memphis Chapter of Black Girls CODE will host their first local Robot Expo! on October 11, 2014 at the University of Memphis, Dunn Hall 3725 Norriswood Avenue. The program will focus on building and programing roots using LEGO NXT and WeDo kits, and was made possible by a generous grant from FedEx. Black Girls CODE workshops have been scheduled to introduce girls to a variety technology subjects and encourage girls to pursue career paths in STEM.
In addition to Black Girls CODE Memphis instructor Karen Farrell-Shikuku, classes will also be facilitated by Frank Niedzwiedz of the West Tennessee First LEGO League and Top Malasri of the University of Memphis Department of Computer Science. The cost of the workshop is $35 per child, with limited scholarships available. Check-in begins at 9:00 a.m., and the event starts promptly at 10:00 a.m. Lunch will be provided.
