Duh ... It's Like Tech for Girls <3

SXSW Interactive, Austin, TX

Monday, March 15, 11am, ACC 7

Our session is not a panel or a talk, but a core conversation. These are like campfire gatherings of people interested in the similar topics. Duh…It’s Like Tech for Girls <3 is for anyone who wants to discuss the topic of getting girls into tech, electronic craft, and igniting that tech spark for all ages. Some of the questions we will be addressing are:

  • Why go after the non-techy girl?
  • What does “pretty” have to do with getting girls to get into electronics?
  • Where do you look for inspiration for projects and content?
  • Why do girls working with technology matter to our quality of life?
