An online meetup for girls who love being creative with science, technology and engineering.
Make friends, learn new things, work on projects together, find out about tech careers, help others learn, show your projects to others, get feedback and help.
The application form asks about ability and interests and if you’d like to talk or show your project (screen sharing and/or webcam) and we’ll flesh out the activities based on that feedback.
We’ll look at an easy way to start learning Python with Edu Blocks, creating animations and using sensors on the Raspberry Pi computers on the International Space Station, pollution sensing, longer term collaboration and more. Tuesdays 5pm and Sundays 2pm will be doing the wearable tech glove course with 4 EssexSteamettes taking part in the competition by making video diaries of their progress.

Really excited to be part of this! I’m giving a talk about AstroPi and am so excited to meet all the girls attending. 💻 https://t.co/KwnflG0i2S

Lowena wrote the code to turn the Astro Pi into an mp3 player which played the Sonic Pi tune created in Southend which Tim Peake tweeted when he was on the International Space Station. Details here.
Just listened to @ac_coder 14 years old from #Essexsteamettes on @PrestonRJam explain #wearabletech brilliantly & how excited they are to move on to building @helenleigh's @mimu_gloves on mircobit. Well done girls x
