Less than 25% of technology workers are women. TechGirlz started 7 years ago to change that statistic. We inspire middle school girls to explore technology with our TechShopz workshops.
Almost 10,000 middle school girls have been to at least one TechShop. 75% of attendees say they have changed their mind about a career in tech.
Listen to one of our alum, Bashira, age 14, talk about how TechGirlz has changed her perception of herself and technology. This is a speech she gave at a recent gathering of STEM teachers.
