<> Crack the Code: Sky High Coding with Drones for Girls</>
July 31 - August 4, 2019 - Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
during International Conference on Interdisciplinary Research Studies (ICIRS)
The Young women will also be inspired and supported by female technology professionals as role models, a signature tenet of uCodeGirl. This project-based intensive programming inspires creativity, fosters collaboration, sharpens communication and cultivates critical thinking, all 21st-century skills for the young women to become a creative, innovative & resourceful adult.
PS No previous coding experience is required.
Beyond the Camp - The Ripple Effect: The young women will get to keep the drones so that they can go back to their respective schools and share with others what they learned. This is a spark to something extraordinary in the continuum of inspiring and equipping young women to the T of STEM careers.
What The Female students learn
Perform fantastic aerial stunts and maneuvers of their drone. Oh, the possibilities…
The young women will learn the three tenets of uCodeGirl:-
Confidence Building & Leadership Traits
In the footsteps of a professional Software Engineer
The design process in solving real-world problems using technology
Computational Thinking Skills
Introduction to drones and its real-world applications
Fundamentals of flight patterns and safety considerations
Foundation of programming: concepts of coding like events, variables, conditionals and loops
Learn to sync the project to and from mobile app.
Program drone to react to your tablet's accelerometer
Navigate drones through obstacle courses
Each Unit ends with a multi-question quiz where students answer a series of multiple choice, true/false, and write-in answers
