What We Offer
A monthly program hosted at elementary schools throughout the region. The goal of this event is to spark interest in technology and computing by providing a fun, collaborative, hands-on environment to learn new tech skills and helping them connect to other STEM programs in the community. This is an all-volunteer led effort with role models and mentors from the professional community as well as middle and high school students sharing their time and passion for STEM.
Tech-Girls in partnership with St. Anne's-Belfield School is proud to launch a Girls Who Code Club, a free program for middle school girls to explore coding in a fun and friendly way! Girls Who Code Clubs focus on building sisterhood, teaching code & making an impact.
The program is a collaboration with the UVa Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME), St. Anne's-Belfield School and Tech-Girls. This experience provides an opportunity for high school students to get a hands-on, behind-the-scenes peek at biomedical research happening right now at UVA. Special emphasis is placed on sharing projects and meeting researchers, faculty & students that help incorporate technology & engineering into the field.
This monthly newsletter highlights opportunities for girls to connect with STEM programs that are local as well as online.
