NIU—ENHANCING ENGINEERING PATHWAYS (NIU-EEP) WELCOMES all to be part of the

NIU—ENHANCING ENGINEERING PATHWAYS (NIU-EEP)
INTEGRATED OUTREACH AND MENTORING PROGRAM
WELCOMES all High School Participants to be part of the
ADVANCED LEVEL II
for the 12 ALL NEW Saturday Engineering Workshops (SEW)
Into its seventh year and geared for Girl Scout Cadettes and Seniors, these workshops challenge participants to sharpen their
math, science and technology skills as they discover engineering! Having completed three/four/five years on various handson projects, all high school participants will get opportunities to explore newer hands-on activities at this level:
The Advanced Level II. In this level, participants will get to explore and experience the joy of electronics with Arduino
programming with littleBits: Participants will get to go through the basics using the Arduino programming environment,
without the breadboarding, soldering or wiring normally required which is perfect for hackers, designers, makers and
tinkerers of all levels and get introduced to the COOLEST WEARABLE ELECTRONICS using the LilyPads and get
introduced to App development for Android phones. Some of these activities were introduced last year. This year the
concepts learnt the past year will be advanced further with newer and coolest projects spread across the 12 hands-on 1.5
hour workshops. As part of a service learning project, participants form this level will have to demonstrate some of these
projects at least in one STEM event: at their local area elementary and middle school STEM nights, science fairs and other
STEM expos.
