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.
YWCA hosted in-person TechGYRLS programming this fall at the following BASD schools: Broughal, Donegan, Fountain Hill, Marvine, and William Penn. The curriculum included various aspects of STEM including engineering, architecture, electronics, and computer programming. TechGYRLS is currently running a Winter session at Lincoln Elementary.
YWCA will return to 5 BASD schools for the Spring 2022 session with all new lesson material. Additional information will be available in January.
If you have questions about the TechGYRLS program, email our Youth Coordinator.
