TechGirls is an international exchange program designed to empower young girls from the Middle East and North Africa to pursue careers in science and technology.
The program emphasizes hands-on skills development in fields such as programming, robotics, mobile application building, web design, video graphics, and 3D game design.
Once the TechGirls return home, they will present their ideas, experiences, and action plans to their schools and communities. Monthly webinars will take place from August 2012 through June 2013 to reinforce skills learned during the exchange and encourage progress on individual projects.
