The tech industry is booming in the San Francisco Bay Area but women are still woefully underrepresented in tech jobs. But the future is looking bright! There are tons of organizations that have taken up this cause and are working to bring STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) programs just to girls. By getting girls of all ages excited about coding, technology and science in general, the hope is that will lead to careers in these areas. Read on to find out what girls-only programs are available in your area.

Devoted to teaching the fundamentals of STEM education through LEGO® bricks, Bricks 4 Kidz has realized that girls often learn better when they are only with other girls. They offer parent-daughter STEM workshops where you build relationships while you build with LEGO® bricks. Their summer girl scientist programs teach girls ages 4.5-10 partnership, collaboration, scientific experimenting and LEGO® building.
