ChickTech: High School is an opportunity for girls in the Boston metro area to participate in a completely free program introducing high school girls to technology. Each year, the program launches its annual cohort with a kick-off event. Kickoff is a two-day series of hands-on workshops led by technology professionals. Workshops include an introduction to robotics, soft circuitry, and more. Girls are nominated by their teachers or heads of extracurricular clubs to participate in the program. Each participant attends one technology-related workshop and leaves with a take-home item from the workshop. Workshops include robotics, soft circuitry, UX/UI design, and more. After kick-off, girls are invited to monthly workshops through June. This program includes food during events, transportation to and from events, and childcare if needed.
ChickTech Boston will launch its first annual ChickTech: High School with a kick-off weekend January 6th and 7th, 2018 hosted by District Hall. Nominate a girl today.
Volunteers are needed to conduct outreach to schools, teach workshops and support the event. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
