Sparking interest in technology, engineering, and computer science

Why It Matters

Today, more girls and women are using technology than ever before. But relatively few are playing a role in creating this technology or are pursuing studies in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Intel and the Intel Foundation support a range of programs, events, and resources that seek to inspire and equip more girls and women to create and build the technology of the future.

Through the Intel® She Will Connect program, we are collaborating with others to empower middle school girls through technology skills and maker experiences to inspire them to become innovators and spark their interest in technology, engineering, and computer science.

Intel is working with the U.S. Department of State and the United Nations Foundation Girl Up Campaign on the “WiSci” public-private partnership to bring together girls from different socioeconomic backgrounds and diverse cultures to work together to create technology solutions for positive social impact in their communities.
