Build IT is an out-of-school project-based curriculum that capitalizes on girls’ interest in design and communication technologies. It reaches middle school girls from populations underrepresented in information technology (IT) fields. In partnership with CalSAC Trainers Network and The SRI International Center for Technology, the CLEC– SAY YES CAMPAIGN is extending its community wide network to include Girls Scouts and YOU! Along with other interested individuals from local schools, churches and interested clubs and community groups throughout the San Diego area.
Hosted at the CornerStone CLEC Connections-STEM Studio30-Computer Lab, youth sessions will be held weekly and on 1st and 4th Saturdays. The weekly curriculum is dynamic and engages the interests, skills and inquiries of youth, grades 4-8 to help promote 3-Design features of the ‘world around us’. Using imagery and discovery, the 3D hands-on projects foster innovation, communication and problem solving. The program uniquely enhances personal esteem, academic skills, character and leadership qualities.
Under the leadership of trained and Certified STEM facilitators, student teams will design “the world around us” by completing 3 units during the course of a year. Field trips and parent engagement is an added feature for interested participants, with advancement opportunities for continuing into the 2nd year-program series. The goals of Build IT are to motivate middle school students, grades 4-8 to:
• Explore IT and IT careers
• Use technology to strengthen and build their technology fluency
• Take mathematics and computer science courses in preparation for future STEM education and IT careers.
