TechGYRLS STEM Programs
YWCA has partnered with the Bethlehem Area School Disctrict (BASD) to provide TechGYRLS at select schools since 2003. TechGYRLS is made possible through generous support from the PA Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program and charitable grants. The overarching goal of TechGYRLS is to inspire girls to explore their STEM interests to the fullest. We believe this generation of girls can be the one to close the gender gaps that still persist in STEM fields such as computer science, engineering, and physics.
Support Your Daughter’s STEM Interests with the new TechGYRLS at Home Program
If you have already registered your daughter for the program, please fill out the Media Release Form (#2) and have your daughter fill out the Student Pre-Survey (#3). Please watch the Introductory Video below when your daughter is ready to open her circuit kit.
In addition to the TechGYRLS from Home self-guided STEM program, YWCA Bethlehem is currently providing weekly virtual lessons for girls at BASD elementary and middle schools. The virtual weekly lessons are taught by YWCA staff and volunteers using Zoom. If your daughter would like to participate in the winter session in February/March 2021, email Program Director Jen Wanisko.
