About GRRL Tech:
Tech Collective's GRRL Tech is an interactive technology expo offering female high school students an up-close and engaging look into dynamic and rewarding technology opportunities. Through industry mentoring and hands-on workshops, GRRL Tech aims to encourage STEM learning, break down gender myths and offer career insight into STEM industries.
Now in its 15th year, GRRL Tech has become a widely anticipated event - most recently, welcoming more than 450 students from 25 Rhode Island high schools and career and tech centers. In total, GRRL Tech has welcomed more than 4,000 female high school students and their educators. We have had held more than 250 workshop sessions with nearly as many IT, Bioscience, and STEM industry volunteers. Since 2008, the GRRL Tech scholarship committee has awarded more than $560,000 in college scholarships to girls who attended the Expo.
