Girls in Tech Info

Postponed

Introduction

Do you want to learn how girls and women use Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math to make a positive impact in the world, and how you can too? 

 Girls ages 13-18 are invited to a 5-day learning experience for underrepresented girls in STEM to learn, lead, & build the future that they want to see. Girls from throughout Hawaiʻi and the U.S. will stay in the dormitories at Kohala Institute on Hawaiʻi Island and engage in scientific excursions, rapid prototyping, and other tech tools that can be used create positive change. 

 This experience is designed to be place-based and culturally responsive. The experience will nurture girls’ abilities to problem-solve and manipulate technology as a tool to address their communities’ environmental, educational, social, and health challenges. Also, girls will work together learning tools to envision a future where STEM fields are diverse and inclusive that will serve as the inspiration for the 4th National Women of Color in STEM Entrepreneurship Conference. Trained graduate students, teachers, researchers, entrepreneurs, and community leaders, will serve as mentors and collaborators throughout the program.
