Girls enrolled in this course not only learn the basics of the programming language C but will also explore the ever-expanding world of wearable tech using LilyPad Arduino. In week one, students will learn about circuits, wearables, and build small projects that are designed to teach them the basics of the C programming language and the GWC Core4 programming Concepts: loops, variables, conditionals, and functions. In week two, girls will take what they have learned and use it to influence the world around them by designing, building, and presenting a piece of wearable tech that solves a social problem or that reflects their personal interests. At the end of the program, each girl will take home their Arduino accounts, project code, and a personal piece of wearable tech they designed during the course!
