Outreach

  • TECHNOFASHION is a grass-roots initiative that started in 2019 in collaboration with CoolTechGirls. It is a series of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) workshops paced over a year-long program culminating in a design challenge. The program aims to educate girls in electronics and programming, strengthen their self-confidence, boost their awareness of team dynamics, help them develop leadership skills, and attract them towards STEM careers in the future.
