Tech Girlz Debuts in Edgewood, Ava Marie Skypes with Havre de Grace

Tech Girlz Debuts in Edgewood

On November 13th, our Tech Girlz program made its debut at our Edgewood Boys and Girls Club with the “What’s in a Computer?” Workshop. The girls had the chance to take apart a computer and learn what each of the components inside a computer do. After that, they played a “JeoParody” game to review their new knowledge on computers, and they ended their day with a digital build of their own computers.

Ava Marie Skypes with Havre de Grace

Two days after Edgewood’s debut of Tech Girlz, our Havre de Grace Tech Girlz had the privilege to Skype with WBAL Meteorologist Ava Marie! She talked to the girls about her position and the work required to get there, as well as why they shouldn’t let their fears of lash back prevent them from pursuing their dreams. The girls asked her questions about her job, her family, and women in STEM. The Boys and Girls Clubs of Harford County thanks Ava Marie for taking the time out of her day to speak with our Club Members.IMG_4613
