Tech Girls Rock: Education Fair in San Mateo

Boys & Girls Club of America

'Tech Girls Rock' is to help introduce girls to the tech sector and working in the computing workforce.

Here's a statistical comparison that warrants educational fairs like "Tech Girls Rock": women comprise 58 percent of the American work force -- yet they only hold 25 percent of the jobs in computing.

Enter Boys & Girls Club of North San Mateo and CA Technologies. "Tech Girls Rock" evolved from a long-standing partnership between the co-sponsors and their focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), as well as the Advancement of Women in IT.

The event held today was a hands-on affair, with girls engaging with projects, career exploration panels and mentor-style workshops.
