For More Information: Visit here.

Tech Savvy is a daylong conference designed for girls in sixth through ninth grade and intended to encourage them to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).  The program is also designed to inform families about STEM education and careers, and to expand awareness of educators and other adults in understanding the important role they play in inspiring girls in these fields.

Although the program focuses on exciting girls about STEM, Tech Savvy also includes a simultaneous track for parents and other adults in the girls’ lives. Presentations and hands-on- activities will engage girls and broaden their exposure to the world of opportunities available to girls in STEM fields.  Concurrent presentations will guide adults to reinforce the girls’ interest in STEM. Keep reading for more details on the program for girls, their families and other interested adults.
