After-School & Summer Programs
It's 3:30 on a Friday afternoon and while many of their classmates have started their weekend, one group of girls are still at school, focused and hard at work putting the final touches on their computer-animation project. Across town, another group is learning to solder. At another school, girls are building a remotely operated vehicle.
Serving more than 600 girls in 30 schools in Oakland, San Jose, Greater Seattle and Washington DC, Techbridge after-school programs open up the world of science, technology, and engineering to underserved girls with fun, educational, hands-on projects. From tackling the challenge of designing a prosthetic hands for the disabled, building a customized gumball machine or learning the fundamentals of chemical engineering by mixing their own lip balm, Techbridge curriculum brings STEM alive for girls through projects with real-world applications.

Summer programs offer the opportunity for Techbridge girls to continue exploring their interest in science, technology and engineering through fun hands-on projects and career exploration. The summer opportunities are made possible by generous support from Chevron. Summer programs are only open to girls participating in Techbridge after-school programs and Techbridge alumnae.
