Since 2011, CA Technologies has partnered with Boys & Girls Clubs of America to deliver hands-on technology workshops for tween and teen girls to spark their interest in STEM careers.
Tech Girls Rock
CA Technologies has been a BGCA partner since 2005, beginning with a focus on internet safety and consumer software donations to local Clubs. Today, CA Technologies funds Tech Girls Rock, an all-day event for 100 tween and teen girls to help them discover and cultivate an interest in STEM education and careers. The partnership is committed to empowering girls to explore a future in technology.
Following completion of a 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. Innovative and inspiring learning opportunities are delivered through the Tech Girls Rock workshops. These lessons include Scratch Programming, Code Breaking, STEM Scavenger Hunt, and a Career Panel made up of CA Technologies volunteers. Participants engage in discussions on key IT trends and topics, and participate in technology-focused challenges and projects designed to provide fun, hands-on, interactive experiences that develop critical thinking skills.
