Girl Computers - A Concept for Linking The Story of "Women Computers" Across the Generations, Girls, Inc., San Antonio, Texas, November 11, 2011
Jim Brazell led a dozen workshops on STEM strategy in 2012 for groups ranging from national associations to school districts. In these workshops, the audience is convened to design the future of STEM education. Five of the twelve 2012 audiences designed coloring books for children in 4th grade to 7th grade. Jim has also discovered that there is no career reader for this same age group related to cyber/IT.
For the past 100 years, San Antonio has pioneered the future. Cyber Girls is a way to bring this story to the attention of the city’s children, teachers, and schools. At a very low cost, Cyber Girls delivers a blended learning curricula connecting classroom and online activities.
CyberGirls is a coloring book featuring computer history, art, and brain game activities on paper while linking to the free online virtual world of Whyville and Whycareers.
The target demographic is 7-to-12 year old girls and boys and their teachers in school (as well as girls STEM camps and related programs).
While initially delivering a local San Antonio coloring book, Cyber Girls is designed to be a national brand and product sold through teacher supply stores and a network of teacher professional development specialists.
