FAMIS alum Flor Serna will once again host her acclaimed Electric Girls camp on Loyola’s campus this summer.
Electric Girls strives to transform young girls into confident and innovative leaders in technology. Through the organization’s immersive camps, girls make new friends and become a part of a growing community of young learners and leaders in technology, and are led by female counselors who foster a safe environment for them to learn, explore, and earn cool badges. Through this camp, girls become proficient in a variety of hand and computerized processes, including soldering iron, laser cutting, 3D printing, and drilling, as well as using tools such as multimeters, wood saws, wire cutters, solder suckers, and more.
Serna founded Electric Girls as a response to her experience as the only female recording engineer at Vital Sounds Recording. Almost immediately, the camp drew considerable media attention, and today has served more than 150 girls in the greater New Orleans area. Previously, Serna taught STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) subjects to fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh graders at Louise S. McGehee School. She also is currently the part-time director of the production studio and Mobile Idea Lab at St. Martin’s Episcopal School.
