The Girls in Tech (GTech) program is an after-school STEM education program for junior high school girls aged 9-16 from underserved communities.


The GTech program aims to close the gender gap in the technology sector by educating, inspiring, and equipping high school girls with the skills and resources to pursue opportunities in computing fields. Students learn basic coding skills, build exciting projects, and develop strong relationships with mentors in the field.
