About TechREACH

TechREACH is a special after-school program helping girls become more confident in the Science, Math and Technology fields. The mission of TechREACH is to increase middle school girls’ interest in science, math, and technology through mentoring, hands-on high-quality curriculum, and real world projects. We create a supportive, diverse educational community focused on girls’ needs through partnerships with parents, schools, communities, business, and higher education.

It is organized by the Puget Sound Center and funded through a Gates Foundation Grant. This page will host the student’s projects for this program.
