ABOUT SHE CAN TECH
Led by Portage High School Robotics students, Mireina Keith (junior), Kassandra Diaz (senior), Kelly Schaffer (senior), and Sanja Kirova (senior), She Can Tech is expanding their outreach in the community with a second session hosted at the high school for any girls in grades 6 to 9 in May 2019.
With funding by the National Center for Women & Information Technology, She Can Tech was able to provide lessons and activities for free during the first session and purchase equipment such as Arduino Kits and Makey-Makeys.
