ChickTech: High School is a program created to show high school girls that technology can be fun and exciting!
We are excited to announce our first High School Conference on March 3rd and 4th at Listo America in Tustin. We have opened our nomination form. If you know a high school girl who would benefit from this program please nominate them at tinyurl.com/chicktechoc1718. If you have any questions feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
All conference workshops are hands-on and project-based so that participants come out of each session with a sense of accomplishment and a burst of confidence. Offerings include robotics, web programming, gaming, and building computers. Our program provides a fun, positive learning experience designed to build participants’ confidence in their technical abilities, give them positive role models, create connections with other young women from the Orange County area, and create a positive association with technology.
A crucial aspect of our program is finding young women who would not otherwise have thought of themselves as capable of succeeding in a high tech career. Many of you have seen young women not reach their potential in STEM because they thought it was too difficult—or do not have any role models in the field.
Our High School Programs are free to high school girls. We provide supplies and materials needed to create the workshop, laptops to work with, and we coordinate with volunteer instructors around the OC Area to lead the workshop. Transportation help and food are provided at all of our events; child care stipends are also available if needed.
