What is Tech Savvy?


Tech Savvy is a one-day STEM Conference designed to engage girls in 6th, 7th, & 8th grade, but all middle school students are welcome! The program's purpose is to help students explore STEM careers and pathways to education, and equip parents to be an encouraging and reinforcing part of the process. All parents and teachers are welcome, and can participate in workshops, too! 

Any adult participating in the program will also need to register. Parents not participating in the adult program should plan on waiting with their student until they are checked in. Parents can meet their students for pickup in the same (drop-off) location at the end of the program. Parents dropping off their students do not need to register or pay.
