WHERE THE GIRLS SLAY!
For the first time in at least 50 years, a majority of U.S. public school students come from low-income families. 51 percent of students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade are eligible for the federal program that provides free and reduced-price lunches.The shift to a majority-poor student population means that in public schools, a growing number of children start kindergarten already trailing their more privileged peers and rarely, if ever, catch up. And for children in low-income school districts, inadequate access to technology can hinder them from learning the tech skills that are crucial to success in today’s economy.
We exist to bring technology and engineering workshops, online and offline, to economically disadvantaged girls (and boys) inspiring them to see themselves playing influential roles in high performing companies when they are adults.
Join us in bringing forward-thinking technology and engineering workshops with content that girls typically care about to ALL the girls (and boys) in our communities. After all, tackling the digital divide amongst rich and poor children benefits us all.
Don't forget, boys are welcomed too!
