We are Girls for Technology
After School Program
Meeting up to three times a week at their local school, girls participate in hands-on STEM projects that bolster the Common Core Curriculum. Topics range from DNA testing to HTML web development, as girls build their own STEM portfolio and are invested in by an industry mentor.
Saturday Math & Science
Meeting every other Saturday at a local college or university, the day’s program covers everything from Cyber Citizenship to Entrepreneurship to Digital Animation, exposing girls to a wide variety of STEM careers and helping them build their STEM portfolio.
Join a team of middle or high school girls as they design, build, test, and program a robot, and then travel with them to compete in various robotics competitions. Girls not only learn vital STEM skills but also grow in their confidence, communication, and teamwork abilities.
Workshops & More
We come to you with a wide range of workshop and training opportunities for middle and high school girls and their parents, too. Whether you are looking for a STEM-based workshop in DNA testing, Cyber Security, or Animation, or want to empower parents as they support their girls, through the College Search Profess, we are ready to serve you.
