STEAM in the Summer Time

By August 1, 2014Uncategorized

Some of our EmpowHer Girls are having ‘hot fun’ in the summer time studying STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) on the campuses of UCLA and UC San Diego. We are pleased to see such excitement about learning in environments that give them a view to the future of going to college and learning skills of the 21st century. Here are some of their impressions from their experience:

Grecia Velasco:“The most critical experiences that I recieved from digital media academy are:     1. Learning how to create a 3D character, building/constructing the body and later designing it.     2. Being taught on how to use the 3D animation app: MAYA     3. And finally, allowing me to create my own imagination in MAYA! It’s fun!”

Monica Muniz: “In digital media I will always remember how to animate characters. It might seem easy at first, however it’s very dificult. You need to memorize the procedures and rules. If you do not, you’ll have to start all over. At this campus, I learned many things. I will always remember them because I might get to use it later iin life. I can’t wait until next year to win this scholarship to learn many new things. This first day I felt comfortable here. I made many new friends. I feel very welcome here. I hope I can come here next year!”
