Girls in Tech Stockholm began in 2017 with a simple mission to encourage and inspire young girls in school in the ages of 13-16, within the areas of technology, science, and engineering. To us, the math is simple, to have more Women in Tech tomorrow, we need to have a greater number of girls considering, choosing, and exploring tech and science today.
We’ve collaborated with schools, colleges, universities, and organizations, with a focus on fun and motivation while providing on-site support to any questions regarding the future. Our workshops are designed to lead through inspiring stories, provide the girls with tools and materials (literally!) where they can team up with other girls, brainstorm on sustainability (our favorite topic!) or simply work on their own, testing and experimenting on various concepts and technologies. We aspire to guide their decision-making process in tech, to support teachers in brining innovation to the classroom, to create the possibility of a better future by diversifying the tech environment, and lastly to instill in the girls an interest and a passion for science, engineering, and technology.
