YWCA Silicon Valley TechGYRLS engages girls with opportunities to increase their skills and confidence in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). We provide 300+ under-served girls, ages 6 to 18, with an empowering, safe, girls-only, hands-on environment where they can build projects, explore careers, and be inspired by women working in the STEM fields.


Knowledge, skills and/or experience preferred but not required.

Must be over 18. Opportunity open to all.


Focus varies weekly. Help students with a robot design project; write programs in NXT format; use vision, touch and Arduino sensors; understand the engineering design
