ChickTech is a non-profit organization dedicated to obtaining more girls and women in technology related careers through hands-on events.
Our High School Program kick-off event will host 100 high school girls from the Denver metro area in a completely free-to-participate event. This program includes food during events, transportation to and from events, and child care if needed. Each participate will attend one technology related workshop and leave with a take-home item from the workshop.
Participants are girls who:
- Have never participated in a computer science course, technology project, or camp before due to lack of interest and/or financial resources
- Have never participated in any technology programs before, but would benefit from exposure to hands-on activities, mentoring opportunities and career exposure
- Typically would not consider a tech career without extra encouragement
- Have an above-average aptitude for math or science, along with a creativity and willingness to learn new things
- Will be in 9th-12th grade as of January, 2018
Please nominate up to 15 girls from your school or program who fall under these qualifications.
Letters for the nominated girls will be hand delivered to your school by December 20th, 2017. We will notify you via email of the exact delivery date.
