Geekido Studio’s Chrooke and Jewels and junior geeks Elizabelle and Rosekiss demonstrated fun projects with microcontrollers at the Girl Power! STEM event.
While the main focus of the event was introducing middle and high school aged girls to the variety of STEM professions, the event was open to the public, and drew many families.
We demonstrated our Animator and G-CHAP, Adafruit’s Circuit Playground, and a Bluetooth LE controlled robot built from an Adafruit kit. We also put together a demonstration of wearable electronics, to show kids how they could control LED sequin intensity and RGB LED colors using a microcontroller and accelerometer sewed into clothing.
