The girls were given an overview on the current status of woman& girls in technology. They were told the reason why more women are needed in the tech field; Tech reflects who creates it and women are needed to be part of creators in tech, so we will not be left out of the decision table

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.

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
