Workshop Descriptions:

1. Mindfulness and Self-Compassion. (Instructors: Toi Geil and Julio Brionez, UW Counseling Center).  This workshop will focus on teaching basic self-compassion skills so that participants are able to hold themselves with compassion as they work with challenging situations.  An overview of what self-compassion is and how to practice it will be provided. This overview will be followed by several experiential self-compassion exercises.

2. Storytelling as Resistance. (Instructor: Prisca Dorcas). This workshop focuses on writing with interactive and creative activities. Students will write their own storytelling pieces in small groups. Students will help in the discovery of finding their own voices and know that storytelling isn’t this scary big thing that only some people can do BUT that they too can tell stories!

3.  Source of Strength: Leadership and Change Agents. (Instructor: Nichol Bondurant and Laramie High School Students). This workshop will focus on group activities that will help build self-confidence and leadership skills. Students will discuss the importance of diversity, cultural awareness, and student leadership in the public school setting. With a variety of activities, students will gain knowledge of how they can make positive decisions in their lives.

4.  Girls Who Code (Instructor: Ana Monzon): The workshop's objective is to motivate Young Latinas to discover computer programming. The girls will learn that programming careers attract people with all types of skills and interests. The workshop includes a hands-on coding exercise using Scratch. With Scratch, the girls will program an interactive animation and, since Scratch is free and available to the public, they will be able to use the tool after the Conference and use their own creativity and work on their projects.

5. Interactive Robots Using Augmented Reality, Arduino, and Raspberry Pi. (Instructor: Dr. Suresh Muknahallipatna, Dr. Bob Kubichek, and UW Students). Discover the world of programming and robotics through hands-on maze navigation and gaming exploration. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in two activities aimed at understanding what robots do and how they can be used to solve real world problems. Participants will also get hands-on experience applying creativity and design skills in the building of a simple platformer style game. The activities will allow participants to get a sense of the tools and concepts in STEM that can be used to solve real world problems, and create fun and engaging media.

6. UW Planetarium - Night Sky and More (Instructor: Samantha Ogden): Become a Sky watcher by exploring the current night sky. Locate visible planets and constellations, and enjoy some sky lore. This show includes topics such as day/night, phases of the moon, seasons, light pollution, solar eclipse, and more.
