Project Splash is an exciting opportunity hosted by the Pacific Northwest Girls Collaborative Project to bring underwater LEGO® robotics to the Pacific Northwest. Join us in this informational webinar to learn more about the program and how you can host Project Splash in your community.

Project Splash is a regional implementation of WaterBotics®, a 5-year scale-up project funded by the National Science Foundation. The project aims to increase the number of educators using WaterBotics curriculum through regional training programs. WaterBotics curriculum educates and inspires students through underwater robotics activities using programmable LEGO resources. The activities have proven successful amongst students, and in particular girls, who are traditionally underrepresented in technology and engineering fields. Project Splash provides these opportunities for middle and high school girls in our region. 

Participants of the Project Splash educator trainings will gain hands-on experience with WaterBotics activities as they learn how to implement a one-week summer program for middle and high school girls. Educators learn new robotics curriculum, exemplary practices in gender equity and engineering messaging, and strategies and tools for implementing a successful summer program. The educator training will include a three-day in-person workshop plus three informational webinars to prepare organizations and their instructors for Summer 2013 programs.

Additional information about the project and online application can be found here.
