Technology careers can seem very abstract to a young girl, especially without a role model. Many girls want to make the world a better place but don’t see how their interests connect with technology or engineering. Research has shown that role models and field trips to worksites are instrumental in encouraging girls to consider technology careers. Opportunities to see real-world applications of technology and meet with role models who work in technical fields are extremely impactful and can have a strong influence on a girl’s career path. But creating those connections are easier said than done. Techbridge has developed career exploration activities to stand in the place of a site visit or role model face-to-face when field trips just aren't possible. Techbridge and our partners at the Girl Scouts of Central Texas will provide guidance on how to organize a successful and impactful event for girls and role models alike. They will share resources and lessons learned. In addition, participants will take part in hands-on activities for K-12 students focused on career exploration.
