New for 2020! ChickTech High School: Virtual
With the onset of COVID-19 in the spring of 2020, ChickTech has shifted our high school programming into a virtual space for the safety and well being of students, volunteers, and community members. ChickTech’s program will continue to offer hands-on workshops and group mentorship opportunities for young womxn in a different format as we enter the 2020/2021 school year.
Year-long programming began in November with monthly technical workshops and mentorship opportunities, which will culminate in a year-end conference, in June 2021, for our high school participants.
Students will have the opportunity to self-select into monthly workshops and group mentorship opportunities which will follow monthly themes:
- Networks in November
- Design December
- Future Plans February
- Math in March
- Apps in April
- Machines in May
- Technology in June
Students will also have access to past virtual workshops and mentorships held in the spring and summer of 2020, including:
- Technical Writing
- The Science of Shoe Performance
- Sustainable Product Engineering and Design
- How to Have a Creative Career in Tech
- How Extracurriculars Lead to Career Success
- Marketing Yourself Online: Introduction to Creating a LinkedIn Profile
Whether you’re looking to explore new tech and STEM subjects, get involved with hands-on projects, or you’re interested in meeting STEM mentors and learning about career paths there’s something in our virtual programming for you!
