ChickTech is a non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging more girls and women to pursue technology related careers through hands-on events.
Our program kick-off event will host 100 high school girls from the Raleigh/Durham area in a free-to-participate event on December 1-2 at Meredith College. Each participant will attend one of the many technology related workshops and leave with a take-home item from the workshop. After kick-off, the girls may choose to participate in any (or all) of the next several monthly workshops. Food will be provided during the kick-off and all workshops. We also provide, on an as needed basis, transportation to and from events and childcare. More information about the workshops is provided here.
We suggest you nominate students who:
Please nominate up to 20 girls from your school or program (parents please contact your daughter’s teacher/CDC for a nomination) who fall under these suggestions, we’d like at least 50% of your nominations to be on lunch assistance or some sort of financial aid.
Nominations for the 2019/2020 program are now closed, however we are collecting student information for those that might want to be on a wait list for any workshops that have open seats.
We will contact those students at a later time for a separate registration.
