Maker Girl – Today’s Makers, Tomorrow’s Life Changers – is coming to the Cumberland Business Incubator on Friday, July 15. Girls in first through sixth grade are invited to participate!
Maker Girl introduces girls to STE(A)M through 3D printing sessions. Maker Girl, a 501(c)3 organization born out of the University of Illinois, is on a summer road trip to provide 3D printing session to girls across the country. The Maker Girl road trip will include a stop at the Cumberland Business Incubator on their tour – Friday, July 15, from 10 to 11:30 a.m.
Women are underrepresented in STE(A)M fields at all levels. Maker Girl strives to change this by igniting an interest in STE(A)M at an early age.
Registration is limited to 20 Maker Girls to ensure each has time to design and print her 3D project.
Registration forms are available by calling the Cumberland Business Incubator office at 456-4910. The Cumberland Business Incubator is located at 2569 Cook Rd. in Crossville, on the Roane State Community College campus.
Maker Girl cost is $25 and open to any first through sixth grade girl. (CBI Make Camp 2016 girl campers will be able to attend at no additional cost.)
