Youth and Media & Tech Girls Exchange: Introducing The Uplifting Avatar

The Youth and Media Curriculum Team headed an exchange and workshop in Washington D.C. with a summer camp called Tech Girls.

During the workshop, the girls were given a choice to pick and act upon 1 of the 3 prompts involving girls and technology. The three choices were 1) Tell the story of a real or fictional girl interested in science or technology and the opportunities and/or challenges she faces. 2) Create an avatar that represents a person who creatively engages in science and technology and can inspire or motivate other girls. 3) Create an app that enables girls to share their experiences of science and technology with other girls.
