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* ages 13–18 explore ways to use technology tools for learning, career success, self-expression, social change and the history of women in technology. Within an intergenerational community of diverse youth and adult women 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. 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.
Bi-weekly on Saturdays from 11AM-3PM, October 23-May 29
In-person once a month, with a shorter, virtual meeting for the other monthly meeting.
We will meet in-person once a month at the UW Othello Commons, and virtually for our other meetings. Tech will begin in person, but Y-WE will prioritize the health and safety of our youth and be prepared to revert to online programming should that become necessary.

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
