Tech Powered By Girls
Tech Powered by girls is a hands-on program that explores themes at the intersection of architecture, design and making. In this program, girls / girl identifying kids will learn about architecture and installation design to reimagine, remix and recreate green spaces and concrete landscapes based on some of Toronto’s most interesting neighbourhoods.
Through observing a number of popular local and international landmarks, we’ll discuss how to make spaces more engaging through sculpture, digital fabrication, electronics and more. Participants will choose a space they’d like to transform (it can be anything from the side of an interesting building, to a parking lot, or even along the shoreline of Lake Ontario) and learn how to prototype and build their installation using Arduino robotics, laser cutting, 3D printing and woodworking.
- Understanding design of urban spaces
- Human-centered design
- 3D design for 3D printing
- 2D design for laser cutting
- Arduino Robotics
