Event description: 

Explore the intersection of science and art with the SpinWheel: a colorful, wearable, programmable STEM kit developed by the Yale Graduate Society of Women Engineers! We are seeking students entering grades 7-9 to join on August 1 for an interactive online workshop where we will use color theory and coding to create beautiful animations on the SpinWheel (pictured here). Create your own custom work of electronic art, which you can display proudly as a necklace or keychain.

As one of the beta testers for our kit, your input will be extremely valuable in helping us to design future lessons for the SpinWheel. All students will receive a free SpinWheel and recognition on our website in appreciation for their help as consultants in the week following the event (time commitment: approx. 5 hours). Please note: Attendance at a brief 15 minute prep session during the week of 7/20 is required.  


 

Open to students entering grades 7-9. Email rebecca.lacroix@yale.edu for more information
