TechShopz in a Box™ are free workshop plans, documents, and guides based on TechGirlz’ tried-and-true workshops. They make it easy for anyone, anywhere to run a hands-on workshop for middle school girls. As a result of this program, the number of girls we’ve reached has more than tripled – and with your help, we can make that number grow.

If you have questions about running your own TechShopz in a Box™, we recommend reading the PlayBook for guidance. Additionally, you can contact [email protected] with any other issues or questions.
