WTTW, in partnership with the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events presents a FREE screening and Discussion Gadget Girls. GADgET Camp introduces middle school girls – some of whom have never even wielded a screwdriver – to what you can do with math and science skills. The film follows as the campers complete their own designed and executed “gadget”. The girls also reveal the social pressures they encounter when they express an interest in the hard sciences. GADgET Camp is on a mission to build self-confidence one drill bit at a time.
This fun, family event will feature an exciting mix of short, theatrical films accompanied by a full length Nature Cat screening! Stick around after to meet Nature Cat himself and participate in a Q&A with the series’ creators!
