INTech Mission

The mission of the INTech Camp is to INFORM and INSPIRE girls to INNOVATE in the technology field. Though women make up only 26% of this space, they have made immeasurable contributions to the industry. It is our goal to expose young girls to the field at an impressionable age to increase this percentage.


INFORM

Exposure is everything! Here at INTech, we find it extremely important for INTech Scholars to learn about the foundation of Computer Science and Technology. Beyond mobile apps and tablets, we would like for INTech Scholars to know about other forms of technology. What are programming languages? What does it mean to think logically? This is what we want INTech Scholars to take away.


INSPIRE

Hearing about someone else’s journey is always helpful. We bring in industry women who have technology backgrounds to share with INTech Scholars about their experiences and their paths. We at INTech know that the road to success is not straight so we want INTech Scholars to know that there are many ways that they can use technology to get to where they want to go. INTech inspirers are asked to share the life path that led them to technology, their favorite projects, and give advice to INTech Scholars.

In addition to Computer Science knowledge, we also want our INTech Scholars to know about the women who have pioneered their way through technology and leadership. Throughout the day, the girls see a powerpoint with information about trailblazers in the technology field.


INNOVATE

The most exciting part of the INTech Camp is the innovation. INTech scholars are grouped together in teams to learn how to build technology solutions. Through this, they are able to learn the importance of paired programming. They are also assigned a mentor who is either in college or the technology industry to help them troubleshoot any areas that they have. Once the innovation is over, the INTech Scholars prepare presentations in which they report out to their parents about what they have learned.

Khalia! My child has built her first app! You have changed a child’s life in less than 8 hours after attending your class. Thank you, thank you, thank you, after the class she said she LOVED it and can’t wait for you to do another one! Your passion for STEM and these girls truly shines through! I’m on board for whatever you need to make this an annual event. We’re cooking you dinner! – Brandi Riggans
