At a great event I attended last night, Women of Influence, hosted by Tech In Motion, I heard from an impressive panel of women start-up founders and CEOs on a host of topics. But one that was clear is the vital need to encourage young girls to explore and feel confident in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).
I also heard about a special program by ID Tech and Code.org that is providing 100 scholarships to young girls to attend the STEM Summer Program free of charge (at various locations nationwide).
NOTE: The deadline is 4/1 to apply!
Please see the details below.
Please help spread the word and share this with friends and parents of young girls and teens!
Thank you all,
Application deadline 4/1/15
Girls can apply for a scholarship at www.iDTech.com/girls
The world needs more girls in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). That’s why iD Tech has partnered with Code.org to give 100 girls scholarships to attend iD Tech Camps — free!
At this weeklong summer program, students ages 7-17 create mobile apps, design video games, mod with Minecraft, build robots, code with C++ and Java, produce movies, and more.
Programs are held at over 100 campuses nationwide.
In addition to iD Tech Camps for girls and boys ages 7-17, we also offer all-girls programs for ages 10-15, half-day camps for aspiring innovators ages 6-9, and 2-week, pre-college academies for teens ages 13-18.
