2017 Systers Pass It On Award Winner
Project: Umbrellables Workshop
Kristen is a computer science student at Columbus State University in Columbus, GA, and works as a tutor, TA, researcher, and Google IgniteCS mentor. Her Umbrellables Workshop is geared toward women and will teach them about creating wearable technology as well as the role of computing in the creation of wearable electronic projects. In the workshop, women will have the opportunity to create light-up umbrellas using RGB cables, clear umbrellas, and color controllers. The workshop is also an opportunity for us to show an array of videos and presentations about computing and women in computing, as well as elaborate on the background of programming for chips and microcontrollers.
