Digital Divas Go Green

Digital Divas Go Green is a summer camp for high school girls to help them learn about the energy we use and the different forms of alternative energy that are outh there. In additon, they will also learn about nanotechnology, CAD, and have the opportunity to design a room via the computer that utilizes alternative energy. We have also built in a field trip to the Museum of Science and Industry to view the Smart Home and build hydrogen fuel cars. The goal of Digital Divas Go Green is to introduce girls entering 9th-12th grade to the non-traditional STEM fields and careers that they may not have thought of before.
