More About the Program
With the disparity between men and women in the Information Technology field, our ultimate goal is to get more girls involved with computer science. By:
- Offering girls a safe, comfortable, all-girl environment;
- Giving them access to communities of female engineers, scientists, and fellow aspirers; and
- Showing girls role-models who make a difference in the field,
we aim to inspire girls to close the gap between men and women in this field.
For TechnoTeens, all that we ask is that you bring in a laptop (and if you think you need it, a laptop charger). The library is willing to offer 5 tablets to whoever does not have access to a laptop, but if you do have one and you bring it in, that would be a huge help.
Most classes don't require anything besides a laptop, however remember: for the first session you will need to bring any waivers you have to sign.
