About Tech Savvy… for Middle School Girls:
This year, we are “cooking up” a great start to a three year theme: What’s the recipe for success?
A little persistence. A little confidence. A little resilience.
Those are some of the key ingredients for long-term success.
And this year, at TS8, we will focus on the first of these key ingredients: persistence.
How many times did Edison try to invent the incandescent bulb?
Legend tells us that he made 10,000 attempts before achieving success!
He didn’t stop trying… and neither should you!
Many girls give up just before achieving their goal.
And, some of our best lessons are learned through failures.
So, when things get tough, find help and try harder—but don’t give up.
This is particularly true in science and math. Success doesn’t come by being “born” naturally smart. Science, engineering, and all of the Tech Savvy skills are gained through hard work, determination, and persistence.
So, when things get tough, Tech Savvy girls get going! (Going on their path to success!)
SAVVY SKILLS WORKSHOPS: Look forward to cooking up your own set of skills that will lead you to success! Your afternoon workshops will help you build skills that will take you into college and through life.
So, you’ve attended Tech Savvy as a 6th, 7th, 8th, or 9th grader?
Tech Savvy still has something just for you.
Very soon, you will be ready to go to college. And we’re here to help you stay “on a roll”!
You are invited to join us for a special set of activities for high school girls. These include a full SAT practice exam, administered by The Princeton Review. While this may not seem like fun at first, your time and preparation will be worth the investment. After the practice exam, you’ll enjoy lunch and a special presentation.
This year’s “on a roll” program will also contain some new workshops for girls who attended the launch of on a roll last year.
And there will be a few special prizes at the keynote session (just for 10th - 12th grade girls!).
You and your parent(s)/guardian(s) will also be invited back in a couple of weeks so that you can receive your test results and feedback—and hear about new plans for Tech Savvy Girls On A Roll… where you can enjoy more experiences throughout the year to keep you on the tech savvy path all the way to college!
Tech Savvy for Adults
Tech Savvy is not just for kids! A full session of activities is scheduled for parents and other adults in the lives of girls! Please join us for workshops and engaging discussion. It is a day’s investment that will reap dividends in your child’s future!
Opening this year’s session will be Christianne Corbett who will feature AAUW’s latest research report.
And you’ll hear learn more valuable information on financial aid and how to engineer your girl to success!
