Learning to code can be a challenging and frustrating exercise for some. Alex struggled in her coding workshop, but would raise her hand and ask questions to ensure she was on the right track. Even though the others picked up coding at a faster pace, she was not intimidated or afraid to ask for help.

While the coding took some time, she successfully coded her TI Rover to write out the letter A for her name. This workshop was available to Alex and her fellow troop members as part of the Girls Scouts of Northeast Texas STEM Program, which focuses on developing hard and soft skills critical for STEM college and career readiness

The Texas Instruments Rover Workshop is made possible in part with support from the annual Air Liquide Electronics’ Air Classic Benefit Golf Tournament, held in partnership with TI. The Electronics team recently presented the organization with a check for $43,582 to support the program.

Erin Fischer, chief development officer of Girl Scouts Northeast Texas, thanked Air Liquide for its investment to ensure that girls build their confidence and competence in STEM. “We truly appreciate all you do to build the next generation of leaders in STEM," Fischer said.

In addition to Alex’s project, other participants created programs to enable rovers to create a perfect circle, stars of different sizes and a musical using the speakers. 

The STEM ecosystem, developed around this program and the STEM Center of Excellence, includes corporations, universities and other nonprofit organizations. These stakeholders are passionate about building the STEM workforce pipeline in Northeast Texas to empower the next generation of scientists, engineers, innovators and leaders.
