ChickTech: High School is a year-long series of opportunities for 100 young women in each city, providing hands-on workshops, mentoring, and internship opportunities. It supplements traditional education and provides a supportive community for young women to learn how to create technology. We focus on recruiting girls who do not see themselves as technical but who have the aptitude to do very well in technical fields. We place additional emphasis on recruiting at-risk and low-income participants. By increasing our participants’ self-confidence and interest in technology, we increase the number of girls who aspire to technology careers. This important work is shaping the workforce of tomorrow to have the diverse skills and perspectives needed for the industry to thrive.
All of our workshops are hands-on so that participants come out of each with a sense of accomplishment and a burst of confidence. They remain engaged and learning through monthly workshops throughout the year. Offerings include robotics, web programming, gaming, and building computers. Our program is free to participants.
