Re-engineering the STEM Ecosystem

We recognize our institutions do not adequately prepare nor create access to high quality STEM learning and career paths that center BIPOC girls*. TBG is focused on one thing – re-engineering STEM education so girls are inspired and prepared to persist toward their STEM aspirations. We equip and galvanize out-of-school time (OST) educators and STEM professionals, with the equity training and curricula that empowers them to act as catalysts for our girls*.

Award-Winning Curriculum

For more than two decades, Techbridge Girls has developed gender responsive and culturally-relevant STEM curricula that allows girls* to see their unique STEM lineage, culture, community and interests.

With our award-winning curriculum and evaluation system, we seek to ensure:

Equipping Educators & STEM Professionals

Where STEM is offered – and this is not consistent – it focuses on rote learning, centers the white male experience, excludes historical STEM contributions of women of color, omits social-emotional components, and does not adequately convey the potential of STEM to create a better world. Through our curricula and rigorous training, OST educators and STEM professionals reflect on their biases and power imbalance, gain confidence to implement culturally relevant practices to their environments and learn strategies for centering marginalized identities in STEM.

Advocacy & Awareness

After 20+ years in the field, we know that STEM education** is not working for girls — particularly Black, Indigenous, and Latina girls living in marginalized communities. The data continually shows how few Black, Indigenous, and Latina women are STEM professionals.

**includes STEM education at the K-12 level; community settings, such as afterschool and summer programs; professional development, such as mentoring programs

Capacity Building

We support organizations through consulting, coaching and strategic partnership who want to build the capacity of their organization’s STEM equity efforts. We support those who have the ability to influence and accelerate our girls’* STEM aspirations to think of their work with youth, administrators, and colleagues as critical to creating a more just STEM pathway for BIPOC girls* from marginalized communities.
