Location: This will be held at PAL.
Host: Kelly Watkins Conrad
During our time together, we’ll be using robots called “Sphero Balls” to help us code during our time together. We will be building a track for our Sphero Balls, and then we’ll use code to drive our Sphero Ball around the course. This exercise will give us the chance to see how code on “paper” translates to a real world action, while having a lot of fun doing it! By the end of our time together, you’ll be an expert at coding your Sphero ball to move the way that you want to.
Kelly Watkins Conrad is a Minnesota native who has always been interested in technology. While her job currently is technical in nature, she didn’t go to school for it. She graduated from the University of Minnesota with a focus in Public Relations, and then immediately joined Jamf entering purchasing information into their system. When she first met someone that was a Sales Engineer, she thought they had the coolest job in the world. They got to travel, play with cool technology, and interact with people from all over the country, and sometimes the world! She decided to take a leap of faith and join Jamf’s support organization, where she learned all about technology, which paved the path for her to get to where she is now. She’s excited to be able to help inspire other young women to break the barriers and become a fierce force in the field of technology.
