Girlstart Summer Camp 'to Go'

Hays CISD, Texas

Girlstart had the opportunity to host our Designer's Paradise summer camp at our three Hays CISD after school locations serving close to 90 girls from Fuentes, Pfluger, Hemphill and Tobias Elementary. During the month of June, girls created LED circuit rings, launched ping pongs across the room with their own catapults, engineered a device to drop a marble accurately on a target and more! Girls even programmed and designed their own engineering themed computer game.
