Tracey Welson-Rossman, shares about TechGirlz, a non-profit she created that "is dedicated to helping adolescent girls understand that a future in technology does not necessarily equate to ‘a boring computer job,’ but instead transcends the cubicle into nearly every field imaginable." Here are some of the things they offer:
  • Technology events
  • Classes, programs, and projects
  • Peers, mentors, and role models
  • Online and offline resources
"We have been in business for over 2 years and have had over 200 girls attend our close to 30 workshops and summer camp. Our workshops take place on Saturdays throughout the school year. Our workshops are mostly taught by women and men who work in the information technology field. TechGirlz believes hands on, interactive teaching which are being used in the real world  allows our girls to experience how technology can be creative and powerful. We also have other workshops which show how technology and art are combined. Some examples of our workshops include Podcasting, Creating a Mobile Application, eTextiles, Programming with Scratch, Learning HTML, Crafting with Technology. Our website,, has our events listed and also lists events from other organizations. We also list any resources the girls can use to keep learning and playing with technology."

As always, we want to hear about your creations!
