Design Thinking

Design thinking is not limited to just tech skills, it goes beyond that. In the Shetech’s project, we train girls to have soft skills; skills that can sell and make them independent; skills they can use to impact their communities, societies and globe at large.

ACHIEVEMENTS ON THE SHETECH’s PROJECT

  1. Cohort 2
  2. Cohort 3

Cohort 2 (positive impact)

Eileen Brewer (Tech mentor Silicon Valley Austin)

Eileen Brewer had a session with the girls, where she talked about the processes of design thinking.

PROCESSES OF DESIGN THINKING

-Empathy

-Define

-Ideate

-Prototype

-Taste

Empathy, stood out for most of the girls it also suggests having people in mind while thinking of designs.

To define means to state the problem.

Ideate:  creating solutions that fits an environment within and without, has to do with creating designs that has the potentials of transforming the lives of people and nations.

Prototype: and earlier model or concept, which led to the success of a design, should not in any way be neglected.

Taste: one needs to have personal concepts, that gives quality, the taste of persons to which this designs will finally reached, should be kept in view also.

INCLUSIVENESS OF DESIGN THINKING

Nigerians and Africans can create solutions to problems, which pertains to us because it creates diversity in humanity.

In essence, design thinking pushes one to discover the potentials hidden in them.   

Shetechs Project Week 4

Bootstrap was introduced to the girls. The girls were taught how to embed bootstrap to the HTML page. It was an amazing experience for the girls. They were introduced into Bootstrap classes which were text class, background color class, padding class, margin class and alert class. They also did some exciting exercises which showed them a lot about the web. Kudos to the trainer, Adebisi Covenant and thanks to our Sponsor Development Exchange Centre (DEC)

SheTech Web development week three classes continued!!!

SheTechs web development week three classes continued on html tags specifically lists i.e. ordered and unordered list. Forms were also introduced to the participant with all kinds of input such as text, number, email, data file etc. CSS was also introduced, the selector attribute and how they operates. HTML & CSS has been running for two weeks because of how bulky the topic is and was rounded up. participant had their first project practice on the topic and created their First sign up page. It was an exciting moment for everyone because they all performed well.

update on web development

Learning was a continuation of Day 1 of session 1 which was introduction to web development i.e. what a website is and its attributes. then introduction to HTML as the language to be used for coding session. The HTML attributes were introduce and the girls were excited to write their own code by doing classwork. They were ask to create a HTML code using all the attributes they were taught for the day like the(<h>,</h>) for heading, (<p>,</p>) for paragraph ,the <a>,</a> for linking and grouping of content, and creating of tables using (<tr>,<th>,<td>) e.t.c.

LBF SHETECHS PROGRAM BEGINS

The learn by building foundation(lbf) “SHETECH PROJECT” was launched on the 4th may, 2021 the project so far has been an exciting training, the girls have shown sign of curiosity and eagerness to learn

The trainers and trainees of the SheTechs project had the chance to introduce themselves and has little discussions about the project and what it was all about. The girls who were not very familiar with Computer basics, were given opportunity to know the basics of what a computer is? Its component, operating system, how to create a folder, how to use Microsoft word, power point and more. Because we realize some applicants do not have any idea on how to operate any of these. They went further to introduce them to the internet because most of what they will be training on is relative to the internet.

The participant (girls) were able to grasp rapidly every basics that was taught, and with these positivity, we dived into dividing the applicants into two categories of the project which is “WEB DEVELOPMENT” AND “EMBEDDED SYSTEM” depending on what they selected.

Our NEW After School STEAM Club

Exciting announcement of the our long awaited STEaM club. Curious learners will have the opportunity to learn in a fun way whether as individuals or teams in the club.

The club will begin with two key areas namely:

    1. Introduction to programming
    2. HTML/CSS
    3. PYTHON
    4. PHP
    5. MYSQL
  • Embedded systems
    1. Basic electronics
    2. smart electronics
    3. coding in embedded systems

“The whole art of teaching is only the art of awakening the natural curiosity of young minds for the purpose of satisfying it afterwards.” – Anatole FranceIt’s World’s Teachers Day and we celebrate teachers all over the world especially our STEM Educators. Happy Teachers Day! Day

Basic programming at Al-Iman school Bauchi

today’s session at al-iman school covered the basic of programming language, why programming language, the different types of programming language as in matters to their level of knowledge. Emphasis was made on HTML as a digital skill. students were introduced to worked around the different tags for different functions

during the practical session

thanks to your facilitators and volunteers, for their endless effort as we keep inspiring innovation in these students through stem.

Embedded systems training

Today, STEMTeers commenced a post Covid19 Hands on project session for selected students in STEM clubs. Engaging students virtually for practical project Session had its limitations. Thanks to the collaboration of the American Space Bauchi and Al-Iman School Bauchi, these students were provided with more training materials and a sanitized space to engage them.Putting in check safety precautions, students were engaged with embedded systems starting with the snap circuits. Thanks to all facilitators and volunteers
