Blossom - STEM camps for Girls!

This weeklong experience for 8-12 year olds creates a special community of joy and learning. Our STEM camps in Buffalo are held from 8am-4pm Monday through Friday at University at Buffalo. On campus in college classrooms, students are guided by an adult instructor through daily activities exploring science and technology. We maintain a 10:1 student/teacher ratio for safety and to optimize learning new skills with new friends.

 

Coding

 

Want to make a video game? A music video? A cartoon? Students can bring their imaginations to life with Scratch coding!

 

Utilizing the technology of the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B, our students learn how to set up their very own computer and Linux operating system at coding camp. From there, they're introduced to the world of open-source software and Scratch- a programming language specifically geared towards their age group.

 

We teach girls how to think like a programmer in an intuitive, kid-friendly way. Much like reading- after one learns to code, one can code to learn. The potential behind this new type of language is enormous and unstoppable.

 

Top skills learned in this class:

  • Scratch programming
  • Open source software
  • The Linux environment
  • Algorithm development
  • Creative problem solving

Every student takes home:

  • Raspberry Pi computer
