YWCA has partnered with the Bethlehem Area School Disctrict (BASD) to provide TechGYRLS at choice schools since 2003. During the 2019-2020 school year we worked with girls at eight schools: Donegan, Fountain Hill, Freemansburg, Jefferson, Lincoln, Marvine, William Penn and Northeast. TechGYRLS is made possible through generous support through the PA Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program and charitable grant support.

TechGYRLS Online Resources

We are missing our TechGYRLS during the extended school closure and have decided to go digital with videos and resources to celebrate awesome women in STEM as well as other outstanding female role models who demonstrate girl power.

Our TechGYRLS Online reading about inventor Ann Makosinski from “Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls” and two additional videos to learn more about Ann and the Hollow Flashlight.
