What is 3D Printing?
Unlike our paper printers at home that print in a 2 dimensional way, a 3D printer works by layering lines of melted plastic on top of eachother to vertically build up a structure. Learn more about 3D printing by watching this helpful video.

What is Girls Learning Code?
Founded by the same women who introduced Ladies Learning Code in 2011, Girls Learning Code is less about “code” and more about changing the world – through teamwork, creativity, and, of course, technology. After a successful March Break and July camp, we’ve decided to respond to numerous requests from both campers and parents to offer more programming. Join us to participate in the city’s only all-girls technology workshops for girls ages 9 to 13. This experience is designed to help girls see technology in a whole new light – as a medium for self-expression, and as a means for changing the world.
We want to help girls:
1. Discover a passion for learning about technology
2. Experience the satisfaction that comes from being a builder – not just consumer – of technology
3. Become more confident and self-assured
4. Develop a willingness to try new things
5. Increase their knowledge of technology-related careers
…all while having fun!
This workshop is hosted by Ladies Learning Code.
