Girls are all nominated by educators, counselors, people from nonprofit organizations and other community members. We are looking for girls who would not find tech on their own, girls who might never think of a career in tech on their own. Nominations are key as we feel that these girls know that someone believes in them and that they can follow any career path – even the one they never considered before.
Please provide us with the names of girls that are (freshman, sophomores, juniors and seniors) from your school or organization that fit at least one or more of the criteria below:
– Eligible for free or reduced lunch (About 50%)
– Girls from underserved communities including girls that are minorities/of color, refugees, immigrants, and/or have disabilities
– Would probably not consider a tech education/career without extra encouragement
– Have not created technology before (that are not already on a robotics team, coding, etc. (About 70%)
