Who is behind the technology that you use every day? How do you access the resources and tools you need to become a creator? And what does it mean to be a creator of technology?
In Y-WE Tech, young women* and nonbinary youth ages 13–18 explore ways to use technology tools for learning, career success, self-expression, social change and the history of women and femmes in technology. Within an intergenerational community of diverse youth and adult femme mentors, we will get hands-on with hardware and software, spend time talking about how the COVID-19 vaccine was developed and the women who helped develop it, and practice different methods of project management and explore ways that we can keep growing creativity through technology using our 3D Printer Wall-E. In Y-WE Tech, we will develop college and career readiness (while being critical about what that means), grow as leaders and discover ways we can use technology to make a difference in our world.
Every other Tuesday from 4:30-6:30PM, October 18th – May 30th
Where: The Y-WE Building (5623 Rainier Ave S, Seattle, WA 98118

Questions about Y-WE Tech?
Listening to the panel speakers helped me realize that there are faces behind technology and organizations. It helped me see that I could be just like them and be successful in STEM if I want to.—Y-WE Youth
