Three members of STEMpact’s STEM TQ facilitation team operated a booth at the Raspberry Pi Jam held January 27 at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center.
“We had a blast engaging young minds in a MicroBits reaction time activity and Coding with Color using Ozobots,” says STEMpact project coordinator Barbara Pener, who was joined at the event by Orlando Sharpe and Sherita Love. “We also had an ‘I am STEM Capable’ photo booth and gave away diversity deck trading cards. Diversity Decks are a creation of STEM TQ made up of individual cards profiling STEM professionals in the St. Louis area that represent a very diverse STEM work force.”
The Jam brought together students, educators, makers, scientists, and the public to foster opportunities for collaboration and education. The event was for both children and adults interested in computers and free to the public.
