The one and only Illinois Tech Savvy is sponsored by our branch and took place on March 25, 2017 at Triton College.
Tech Savvy is a daylong science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) career conference designed to attract girls in sixth-ninth grade to these fields and to inform families about STEM education and careers. Although the program focuses on exciting girls about STEM, Tech Savvy also includes an important program for parents. This component encourages families to reinforce the girls’ interest in STEM.
