The Jamestown Branch of AAUW along with partner organizations held the 2017 Tech Savvy at the University of Jamestown on March 7. This year over 330 young women from the Jamestown Middle School and area rural schools attended the event. This program was awarded a $2500 grant from AAUW National and also received ND legislative funding support for technology events. It was a fun day filled with laughter and learning!

What is TechSavvy?
TechSavvy is a daylong event that inspires middle school girls to pursue science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). AAUW’s research shows that young women lag behind young men in acquiring technical proficiency. The conference is designed to make STEM exciting and relevant to girls in high-demand careers in a global economy where women are still greatly underrepresented. Middle school girls from the area will have the opportunity to learn problem-solving skills by engaging in hands-on workshop sessions.
