Collaboration is the foundation of open source. Connections are formed. Discoveries are made. Fresh ideas emerge. And obstacles are overcome.

Enter CO.LAB – a program designed to introduce middle school girls from under-served areas to the principles of open source -- and to a world of technology and collaboration that they may not have otherwise considered. Through this multi-day intensive program, they learn the basics of coding and then build their own digital cameras with Raspberry Pis. They use the photos they take to build a collaborative art project that we share with them and the world.

Collaboration is a powerful driver of innovation and discovery, and open source methodology is a key part of STEAM education. Ruth will explain the details of the CO.LAB program, its Raspberry Pi-based curriculum, and how through it, Red Hat is empowering young girls with collaborative skills that will help them succeed.
