TechGirlz is a nonprofit organization dedicated to reducing the gender gap in technology occupations, by focusing on girls at the crucial middle school age. We offer free workshops to get girls interested in different kinds of technology, show them varied career options, and connect them with professionals in technology fields. Through our free hands-on TechShopz, we show them that technology can match their interests and be fun and rewarding.
Is your group free to join? Yes
Collaboration Goals We'd like to get more teachers to volunteer to teach TechShopz workshops.
