Tech Girls Rock!
Since 2011, CA Technologies has partnered with BGCA to deliver hands-on technology workshops for tween and teen girls to spark their interest in STEM careers.

Can girls be interested in technology? We think so!

Boys & Girls Clubs of America and CA Technologies are showing their commitment to girls and technology through Tech Girls Rock. Check out this video on how these workshops are helping girls discover an interest in tech-related educational and career opportunities.

Following completion of the ten-week DIY STEM program, Tech Girls Rock events help girls further cultivate an interest in the subjects of STEM, and ultimately tech-related educational opportunities and careers.

Through the support of CA Technologies, Tech Girls Rock will be hosted by select Boys & Girls Clubs across the country through unique workshops which include career exploration panels with technology professionals who will share their own experiences. Participants will engage in discussions on key IT trends and topics, and will participate in technology-focused challenges and projects, which will provide hands-on technology experience.

In a 2007 Harris Interactive survey, 51 percent of Club alumni say they achieved a higher level of education than they thought possible because of attending their Club.
