About

The program of technologies we provide has been evolving since 2002! We have always co-mingled arts and crafts with multi-media, web development, open source based graphic design, office applications, geocaching, and other activities like outdoor skills, leadership and engagement. Our Technology Goddesses Day Camp has been a San Diego Girl Scout Day Camp since 2005; one of the oldest continuously run STEAM programs around. We take preschool and boy children of volunteers as well as campers in grades K-12. Many of our long time campers grow with us through high school, then return as young adult volunteers in college and as their careers launch. In recent years, among other things, we have added:

  • Spheros, robots that look like pool balls- they are waterproof and among other activities we paint with them
  • Technology Goddesses Studios – video and social media content provided by a special set of our older aides – our YouTube channel, our Instagram account, and our Twitter account
  • More coding through code.orgscratch.mit.edu and MIT Android App Inventor for all ages; we plan on adding other variations of coding this year
  • Discussion of basic electric engineering concepts, such as crafts with copper tape paper circuits, and Snap Circuits
  • Advanced hardware and software demonstrations, including 3D printing and wearables,

This year our day camp had a visit from the San Diego Union Tribune. Please find a link to the article below. Enjoy reading interviews with some of our campers and learning about patches earned and new tech at camp!
