In the workshops, small groups of students are engaged in hands-on activities related to math, science, engineering or technology careers. Workshops are led by women professionals. Workshop leaders will also share their careers, their preparation for them, some of their work experiences and a little bit about their personal lives (family, pets, hobbies and outside interests). Workshop leaders become role models for the girls.
Attendees are able to choose from a variety of fun workshops and will be assigned one of their choices. All workshops are conducted in English.
EXAMPLES OF STUDENT WORKSHOPS
1. Brain Games
Put on your thinking cap and learn to make a model brain cell while learning about all the mind-boggling things a brain can do from recognizing words and colors, to making memories, to controlling your movements.
2. Introduction to Creative Coding with PSIS
Students will get first-hand experience of just how much fun coding is! They will create a film poster using code.
3. Survive the Zombie Apocalyse
Learn to stop zombie disease from spreading.
4. CAD Girls’ Club: Intro to 3D Modeling
The “CAD Girls’ Club: Intro to 3D Modeling” workshop will engage students in learning by tinkering. This hands-on workshop will give students a shortcut to learning 3D modeling without designing a complex project. They will be shown step-by-step how to create a 3D model using beginner level CAD software. Students will have the freedom to practice virtual thinking, geometry, and making objects come to life on the computer screen. Students will develop their own 3D model and have the basic skills to create more models in the future.
5. Let’s take a Cell-fie
Students will never look at the vegetable on their plate the same after this workshop. Vegetables and the plants they come from are composed of cells. These cells determine how the plant looks, feels, and tastes. In this workshop, we’ll ask what do the cells look like?

Artificial Intelligence through music and art with the goal of cultivating Racial Equity in the Field of AI. We will explore the field of AI from its basics and create neural art and music.
7. Slide-ing into Cells
If you sign up for this workshop, we will send you a lab kit with one foldable microscope and several slides of model organisms to observe. During the workshop, students will learn how to draw scientifically. There will also be an optional pre-session for reviewing how to assemble microscopes.
8. Navigating COVID 19 in NYC
Students will use tableau to monitor and make their own predictions on Covid 19 data trends. Students will learn how to use data to better understand the impact of the pandemic across different socio-economic groups, age, and race.
