TechGirlz is a hands-on tech conference for junior high girls.
TechGirlz includes hands-on workshops in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). For the last two years, TechGirlz was virtual and students were mailed hands-on materials prior to the event.
Our vision is to create a world where girls have a lifelong passion and confidence in their use of technology throughout their careers. Join us in inspiring girls to explore the possibilities of technology and empower their future careers.
