Build IT

Build IT is an after school and summer
youth-based curriculum for under served middle school girls to
develop information technology (IT) fluency, interest in mathematics,
and knowledge of IT careers.  In Unit 5 of the curriculum,
Collaborative Game Design and Troubleshooting, the girls use
Stagecast Creator to learn IT skills such as object-oriented
programming, collaboration, and leadership in teams.

The Build IT materials, developed and co-owned by SRI International
and Girls Incorporated of Alameda County (Girls Inc.), are available
to educators and youth development facilitators.  Build IT was
supported by funds from the National Science Foundation and the Noyce
Foundation.
