rvatech/Techsters Camp is Back Jan. 21st
Formed in 2013, TECHSTERS is a half-day coding camp for middle school aged girls with a mission to inspire a future generation to discover technology, get excited about STEM, and build code for real-world applications.
Since the program’s first day event with robotic balls called Spheros, TECHSTERS has served over 1,200 students in the greater Richmond region. Students have worked with Spheros, Raspberry Pi's, Amazon Alexa, WeMo Switches, and more!
About the Event
Have you ever wanted to create your own website?
Technologists at Capital One will introduce two coding languages used frequently in web development. You will learn about HTML, the skeleton of a web site. Then, you will learn about CSS, the code that makes a website look great. Capital One mentors will teach you the basics of programming while challenging you to put your skills to the test as you build a website. No experience required! If you have had an introduction to web development previously, join us for a day of expanding your skills and working with technologists to go deeper into this area!
At the end of the day, a team of our technologists will share their insights on their experiences and career paths to Capital One! You will be encouraged to ask your questions about what it means to work in Tech.
Students will need a Chromebook or other laptop device and access to Replit.
***IMPORTANT: We ask that you please test and confirm that this platform will be able to be used to its fullest extent without any firewall issues in advance of our programming.
To maximize the students’ opportunities to practice and build on Replit, they will need to sign-in to the platform using an email address. Please create a profile on the site in advance of programming with either a student or personal email account.
