MCWT Tech Camp For Girls This Week

Dozens of metro Detroit girls are getting immersed in high tech this week thanks to the Michigan Council of Women in Technology Foundation.

The organization is hosting its annual Camp Infinity, a technology camp designed for 9-13 year old girls to showcase IT careers in Web design, video game development, robotics, and discussions with prominent female technology leaders.

The camp will be held at Lawrence Technological University in Southfield.

MCWT strives to attract and retain women in Michigan’s IT field, and it understands that reaching girls early in life is key to influencing long-term change. Camp Infinity is one of the foundation’s programs that introduces technology as fun and fulfilling and serves to inspire girls to pursue technology further.

During the week, the girls, in teams of two, will design, build and program a robot to perform a dance routine. They then choreograph their dance with another team so the two robots move in sync. Final testing of the systems is scheduled for late Friday morning.
