Mission Statement

We strive to inspire girls in underserved communities to discover a passion for science, technology and engineering. We give them access to the hands-on learning and real-world exposure they need to pursue their dreams and careers. We also work with families, role models, school districts and partners to provide the guidance they need to support girls and set them on the path to success. We believe in the possibility of every girl having the power to change the world.

Description

Techbridge began as a program of the Chabot Space & Science Center in Oakland, California, founded with a grant from the National Science Foundation in 2000. In 2011, Techbridge spun off and now operates as a separate 501(c)(3) nonprofit. We continue on our path to increase the number of women and underrepresented minorities in science, technology, and engineering. Our after-school programs are in place at schools spanning three Bay Area school districts. We provide training to school districts and partners to build capacity for STEM teaching in after-school and summer programs. In addition, we have collaborated with 20 Girl Scout councils across the nation through our Girls Go Techbridge project.
