Techbridge is an award-winning national nonprofit that is engineering a revolution for girls to change the world through science, technology, and engineering. We aim to increase the number of girls pursuing STEM careers, specifically targeting girls from underserved communities and underrepresented ethnic groups.

Our renowned after-school programs target girls in grades 4-12 from low-income communities. We engage girls in a year of scientific discovery and prepare them for making big decisions that shape their careers through a girl-friendly environment, hands-on activities, role models, family events, and field trips to local employers. Beyond introducing girls to technical skills, we build character traits like perseverance and grit, and introduce girls to an array of STEM careers. We also partner with teachers and train them to better engage girls in their classrooms.

Our strong attention to regular evaluation has produced evidence our methods work: Based on a longitudinal study, girls who participate in Techbridge graduate at higher rates with higher GPAs, score better on state exams, and are twice as likely as the national average to choose STEM majors in college.

Techbridge relies on contributions from individuals, corporations and foundations to deliver our programs at no charge to girls from low-income communities.


Chevron and KPIX have teamed up to champion STEM education.
