Cooltechgirls TECHNO FASHION Program
#TechnoFashion is a series of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) workshops paced over a year-long program culminating in a design challenge. The program aims to educate girls in electronics and programming, strengthen their self-confidence, boost their awareness of team dynamics, help them develop leadership skills, and attract them towards STEM careers in the future. In the first half of the program, TECHNOFASHION participants work in teams to self-explore sewable electronics and learn how to program them. In the second half, a Design Challenge is assigned, and teams work in their own creative ways to design and build TECHNOFASHION prototypes that will compete at a year-end Competition. Two technical workshops will provide participants with hands-on kits and homework assignments, while a leadership workshop will help participants strengthen their self-confidence and develop leadership skills. Mentors will be available throughout the TECHNOFASHION experience to guide girls as needed.
