This past weekend, the Chamber, in partnership with the
Broadway Center for Performing Arts,
hosted Sue's Tech Kitchen, a concept created by entrepreneur Randi Zuckerberg to encourage youth, especially girls, to engage with science, math, and technology.
Guests had the opportunity to create binary-coded name bracelets, 3-D s'mores, fly candy-dropping-drones, make marshmallow molecule models, and try different chemistry experiments.
This experience also highlighted local STEM offerings. Sponsors and vendors including Alaska Airlines, Mary Bridge Children's Hospital, Tacoma Public Utilities, and Bricks for Kidz, showcased tech-based programs that are available locally to youth featuring robotics, coding, astronomy, and more.
The event, which saw more than 2500 attendees over three days, kicked off with a launch party featuring Randi Zuckerberg herself, to celebrate this one-of-a-kind, collaborative effort.
