Electric Girls: To Develop Your Daughter Into a Confident Leader and Innovator, Register Today!
Electric Girls allows local girls to learn skills in electronics and computer programming while working with female role models in technology. Join for an all girls program where your daughter will design and build her own take-home inventions!
During her first Electric Girls program, Julia (age 9) designed and built a working LED lamp with a switch, complete with her own self-soldered circuit. With us one year later, she programmed an Arduino board to control her lamp- when it’s dark out, her lamp automatically turns on, and it’s off again as soon as the sun comes up!
Julia, now age 10: “In Electric Girls, I’ve made new friends, learned leadership and teamwork skills, and increased my interest and knowledge in STEM. It’s also helped me become a kinder and more helpful person in general.”
Our 5-week program is for girls like Julia who would thrive with this opportunity to ideate, prototype and build their own inventions, and become a confident leader in the process!

- “What I love about Electric Girls is the fearless exploration…”
