About

ChickTech Orange County is holding a two-day event for 50-100 high school girls in Fall 2018. This event is a fun, positive learning experience designed to build participants’ confidence in their technical abilities, provide positive role models, and create connections with other young women from Orange County and surrounding areas.

The role of ChickTech Workshop Leaders is to create and lead a fun, creative, project-based tech/STEM workshop that leaves our high school participants with a strong sense of accomplishment and confidence to challenge the tech industry. The participants (high school girls) will be able to bring an item back home to showcase their accomplishment.

Topics may include (but are not limited to ) web development, Circuits, Arduino (C++), Python, Ruby, AndroidStudio (Java), AppInventor/App Building (drag and drop program). You can create your own workshop as long as the participants can take something home! This is not a lecture-based workshop.

The benefits: an opportunity to have leadership experience to put on your resume. Opportunities to network directly with ChickTech volunteers and staff across the US. Networking opportunities at a local level with a wide diversity of tech companies and other organizations. Having a direct impact on the ability of the local ChickTech chapter to be able to enact its mission. Having a positive, direct impact in the lives of girls and women.
