Girl assembles PC computer at Moraine Park Girls Make IT Happen camp

We’re hosting our first-ever Girls Make I.T. Happen summer camp this week at Moraine Park’s Fond du Lac campus. Girls entering 9th through 12th grade from around the area are taking part of this unique, fun event.

On Monday, the girls got a taste of our Information Technology (IT) Support and Networking offerings, learning how all the pieces of a computer needs to operate and communicate with each other and the Internet.

On Tuesday, the girls’ creative flare was put to the test as they explored Graphic Communications, taking self-portraits against a green screen and working with Photoshop.

These pictures were then set to be used on Wednesday to help build a small website about themselves, as the camp attendees learned about HTML and CSS. An activity like this gives a great first look into the world of Web Design.

To wrap things up, Thursday will see the girls explore how to build a mobile Web iOS app using iPhones and iPads. These are the types of projects our IT – Mobile Application Developer program students are familiar with.

Take a look at the awesome job they all did in the photos below and be sure to check out photos from our Toolin’ It Manufacturing Camp and Girls Rock Robotics Camp we held earlier this month as well.

Also, thankfully, the summer fun isn’t even close to done yet either! Take a look at all the options still available for our popular Tech Knowledge College (TKC) event coming up Aug. 1 – 3. There’s still time to sign-up! TKC is for kids entering 6th through 8th grade.
