About

Inspire girls to explore the possibilities of technology! 25% of IT professionals are female and research shows that girls opt out of STEM classes in High School. TechGirlz helps inspire middle school girls to explore STEM careers by through free hands-on workshops in over 35 different topics.

You can help by organizing your own workshop with TechGirlz TechShopz in a Box (TM)! We'll help you get started with complete workshop plans in the topic of your choice with a PlayBook that outlines the steps to running a successful hands-on technology workshop.

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!

Steps to Run Your Own Workshop with TechShopz in a Box (TM):

1) Choose a topic (http://www.techgirlz.org/topics/)
2) Find an instructor
3) Find a location
4) We'll recruit the girls
