”Beat the Heat!” : Girls In Tech / Genesis at Marciano Art Foundation

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Gayle Anderson was live in the Mid-Wilshire District with BEAT THE HEAT information about GENESIS AT MAF and its GIRLS IN TECH HERO program. The team’s innovation grew from their passion to find a solution for personal safety in light of recent news of sexual harassment in the nation. HERO is a discreet voice activated wearable device designed to record, document and call for help in emergency situations. Embedded in custom designed 3D printed jewelry, HERO listens for pre-programmed trigger words and alerts your emergency contacts. The girls will now go on for professional training, and in August pitch for next round funding for their new company. Their success is helping GENESIS demonstrate that access to quality STEAM learning is key to transforming under-resourced children’s futures.

For more information on HERO you can visit their website.

And, don’t forget the NEW, FREE and UNIQUE art installation open to the public “Reality projector” by artist Olafur Eliasson. Some of the skills used to create this exhibition are being taught in the Genesis STEAM at MAF workshops!
