TechniGals Summer STE(A)M Camp just finished its second summer at the Middletown Free Library. The aim of the program is to get middle school girls excited about science and technology through hands-on projects and workshops as well as through introducing them to women working in a variety of STEAM fields. I will talk about this program and others that attract girls to the library to engage with technology and making including how to get started, finding project ideas and speakers, and ideas for funding a similar project in your library even if you don't have a STEM background.
