5 years ago, TechGirlz started with a singular vision: to change the way middle school girls think about technology through free, hands-on workshops. The workshops caught on quickly - within a year, our events were getting booked solid, with waitlists reaching two, sometimes three, times the amount of seats available. We needed more instructors willing to teach our girls.
TechShopz In A Box™ Are Born
So we decided to open source our workshop plans, documents, and procedures, calling these free materials TechShopz in a Box™. This allowed anyone, anywhere to run our workshops. As a result of this effort, the number of girls we've reached has more than tripled - and with your help, we can make that number grow.
Detailed workshop plans to teach a variety of topics: from mobile development, to programming with Python and more.
