Our First Family Maker Night
The BACIS Leading Ladies held their first Maker Night on April 6th where young girls were able to create and build their own STEM projects. The projects included making a propeller car, creating lava lamps, and Building a small catapult. The girls who attended were quite interested and were asked to participate in a second event where they can inform more friends to attend as well.
Round Two: Second Maker Night
We held our second Maker Night on April 19, 2017. This time around we added a new project: LED light button. The girls used LED lights, batteries, and wires to lights up their buttons. The lava lamp project was the most popular: girls used water, oil, and alcasetser to create cool reactions. We also took pre- and post surveys to see the girls interest in STEM change.
