What We Offer

Girls’ Geek Day

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.


Girls Who Code Club

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.


Bio-Med Tech-Girls

The program is a collaboration with the UVa Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME), St. Anne's-Belfield School and Tech-Girls.
