Girls! Fancy making your toothbrush into a robot? Or how about creating a blinking LED badge? Discover how to make an Arduino theramin, create objects with e-textiles and make electronic music from your drawings!
To learn these and many other cool activities, head over to Longsight Library every Saturday afternoon from Saturday 2 March through to Saturday 20 April.
Manchester Libraries, Information and Archives are continuing their successful partnership with Manchester Girl Geeks to run these quirky and educational workshops. Girls aged 11 - 15 can join any or all of the eight innovative sessions starting this Saturday.
Paula Carley, Neighbourhood Engagement Officer at Longsight Library, says "We started thinking about the popularity of the Raspberry Pi and the idea just took off. We had a great time working with Manchester Girl Geeks last year to deliver the Introduction to Coding sessions for girls and we really wanted to build on that success and continue to encourage more young women to think about careers in science and industry"
