ChickTech is a non-profit organization dedicated to obtaining more girls and women in technology related careers through hands-on events. Last year we had our inaugural high school program and hosted 83 girls from 20 area schools!

Just like last year, our High School Program kick-off event will host up to 100 high school girls from the Austin metro area in a completely free-to-participate event. Each participate will attend one hands-on technology related workshop and leave with a take-home item from the workshop.

We are seeking instructors who are interested in volunteering their expertise to help excite these girls about a career in technology. Our kick off event will take place either the weekend of November 4-5th or December 9-10th. We will also host weekend day-long monthly tech career related workshops through May.

This year our girls will be learning:

  • Web Design
  • Robotics
  • Game World Development
  • Digital Film Making
  • Soft Circuits

At the kickoff weekend. We are still seeking instructors for workshops such as:

  • Mobile app design
  • Building a computer
  • Building an IoT device
  • Programming for Google Home or Amazon Echo
  • Web Database Applications
  • Or other topics of interest to you

If you have an idea for our kickoff weekend and/or for a monthly workshop please email with information about you, your company, and your idea.
