TechGirlz is here to inspire young women to shatter the statistics. Their aim is to help adolescent girls understand that a future in technology does not necessarily equate to ‘a boring computer job,’ but instead transcends the cubicle into nearly every field imaginable.
By encouraging women to participate in science and technology today, as well as providing a solid foundation of peers, mentors, and positive role models, TechGirlz hope to spark innovation, exhilaration, and motivation in young women to become tomorrow’s tech leaders.
TechGirlz is working to help middle school girls embrace the power of technology. They offer after school programs that show all the forms the technology takes in our lives today and how girls can learn how to use them.
