Welcome to ChickTech: High School 2020/2021!


Baker Charter School students — you have been invited to participate in a year-long virtual, tech program for high school girls. Read the below message from our ChickTech leaders to get all the awesome details!



ChickTech’s program will offer hands-on workshops and group mentorship opportunities with industry professionals, but this year they will be in a virtual space on a national scale! The program begins with an introduction to the virtual space event on October 24th, followed by monthly mentorship and hands-on, technical workshops from November-June, and the year will culminate in a year-end conference.


You will have the opportunity to self-select into monthly workshops and group mentorship opportunities which will follow a monthly STEAM theme. The aim is to create a fun, positive learning experience to build confidence in your technical abilities, provide positive role models, and help you create meaningful connections with young women nationally.


If you miss a workshop or mentorship THAT'S OKAY because we will have a virtual library of recorded content where you can catch up and practice your skills in your own time. We are here to help you succeed!
