Hands-on Workshops to Spur Interest in Tech Fields

ChickTech offers events that encourage women and girls to enter the field of technology, giving support and empowerment to those hoping to turn their interest in technology into a career. ChickTech: High School is a yearlong series of opportunities for 100 young women in cities across the country. The program provides hands-on workshops, mentoring, and internship opportunities. It supplements traditional education and provides a supportive community for young women to learn how to create technology. ChickTech focuses on recruiting girls who do not see themselves as technical but who have the aptitude to do well in technical fields. It places additional emphasis on recruiting at-risk and low-income participants. Workshops occur monthly throughout the year. Offerings include robotics, web programming, gaming, and computer building. The program is free to participants.
