How Can You Inspire Girls to Explore the Possibilities of Technology

Presented by

About this talk

Only 25% of technology professionals are female. Girls are opting out of STEM classes in HS. Fewer women earn degrees in Computer Science now than 30 years ago. The numbers are bleak but you can help! TechGirlz can help you organize a technology workshop in your community and inspire girls to explore the possibilities of technology. Learn how you can use TechShopz in a Box (TM) free workshop curriculum to introduce middle school girls to topics such as website design and development, game design and development, mobile app design, media editing, robotics, computer hardware, and much more! All materials are free for you to use and TechGirlz is here to help you get started in your community. Be sure to ask some friends to help - it's more fun together!
