Tumblr, DIY Girls needs your help. 
This amazing program normally runs after school STEM programming for elementary school girls. For the first time, DIY Girls is running a Summer Camp, full of things I wish I could do now, nonetheless in elementary school (Inventing with Recycled Electronics! Toy Design and Hacking?!?! FASHION AND WEARABLE TECHNOLOGY!!!!). 
It costs $150 per girl to make this program work, and since the program is already in a low-income, high-need area of Pacoima, we’re trying to raise the funds through donations. We have until July 1st, and then our attendance will be capped based on how much money we’ve raised.
Please help us admit more girls to the program! $150 is a lot of money, but every $5 gets us closer to admitting another student. Anything you can contribute is appreciated, especially a reblog to get more eyeballs on this program. Today Pacoima, tomorrow the world.

I like DIY Girls because the projects are fun even though they’re hard

Playing with the Little bits premium kit :) it’s so fun and easy to use

We receieved littleBits kits as a holiday gift from the CAA Foundation. Our instructor has already started inventing with it. 

My dream is that every child will have the tools that they need to create and be creative with technology

Jasmyn is excited to see our new 3D printer.
