Re-engineering the STEM Ecosystem
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 ProfessionalsWhere 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.
3rd to 8th grade
Ignite sparks girls’* curiosity in STEM by providing a fun introduction to a wide range of STEM experiences that will excite girls’* to continue their interest and exploration.
9th to 12th grade
A community for TBG Alumni to tap into a national network, access resources to pursue their STEM interests and build their social capital to navigate their STEM aspirations.
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
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.
