Capacity Building

CGEST’s capacity building arm serves to increase the participation of women and girls of color in STEM fields by providing evidence-based, research-driven programs that engage participants in socially relevant technology experiences. Through programs such as COMPUGIRLS, CGEST provides one of the few technology programs that weds culturally relevant practices with project-based technology activities encouraging girls of color to develop socially relevant, researched products in areas of digital media, coding, and robotics.
