Spring has finally sprung and so too
 have opportunities for Tech-Girls (& Boys)!

Tech-Girl Monthly: Charlottesville Editon

We are super excited to be sharing a booth with the CyberJutsu Girls at the USA Science & Engineering Festival this weekend (April 25-27) in DC! If you are coming to the Festival, you won't want to miss the Girl Zone. We are also looking for volunteers to help out at the booth - it's a great way to get an inside track on the festival. Volunteers on Friday also get a sneak peek at the festival before it opens to the public on Saturday. For this and other volunteer opportunities with Tech-Girls, please complete this brief form.
