TechPREP and STEM Tech are multi-track programs targeted at 6th grade through high school students, parents, and administrators. A consortium of organizations will deliver an integrated program including a technology demonstration center, classroom teaching, and awareness-building and experimental events. Our aim is to connect young women with college students and local business people.
A cohort of 6th, 7th, and 8th grade young women will be introduced to
practical aspects of computing, physics and engineering through a series of Saturday programs
held twice a month and followed up with a two week summer day camp. The age group is chosen because continued achievement and a foundation
of eventual success in the sciences starts early in a student's education.
