GirlsTech is all about empowering girls to confidently imagine, create, lead and achieve. Be the best future innovators we can be! Why GirlsTech? Women make up half of the national workforce, but hold just 25% of the jobs in technical or computing fields according to national research. Let’s get girls involved!
Let’s learn to code then apply what we’ve learned! Learn to build games, apps, websites and harness the ability to craft your vision. Teach girls computer science fundamentals, computational thinking, and the power to build games and apps, learn coding concepts and tools to craft their vision. We’ll talk algorithms, loops, conditionals, events, a debugging challenge and use the power of code to build our game or app. Our goal: to help girls learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively — essential 21st century skills.
In this Lab program innovation and design drive solutions. Programs activities have an emphasis on innovation, the design process, problem solving, prototype & testing through a series of challenge projects. Let’s be hands on inventors to design, prototype and create manufactured works. All elements in the lab are used, plus the coding or CAD to make them work, including robotics, microcomputers, modular electronics, 3D Printer.
Design and build robotics that race, dance, rise to the challenge of search & rescue, perform stunts that amaze and amuse. We will customize our bots, experiment with sensors and remote controls, code to program bot behavior, and learn the essentials of bot design and structure.
StartUp Lab GirlsTech
In the StartUp Lab Summer Incubator, our goal is to inspire the next generation of innovators. In this experiential program girls are inspired to creatively apply technology and business concepts to unlock potential opportunities. More about StartUp Lab
