App Camp for Girls is a one-week summer day program where girls, transgender & gender non-conforming youth can put their creative powers to work designing and building apps. They also learn about the business of software while being inspired by role models in the industry.


TechStart + App Camp For Girls

Jean MacDonald

We are pleased to announce that TechStart, the educational foundation of the Technology Association of Oregon, will be the fiscal sponsor for the App Camp For Girls program. Our fundraising efforts will fall under the umbrella of TechStart's non-profit status and we'll also benefit from their broad experience in bringing technology education to kids. 

TechStart provides educational opportunities designed for the 21st century to students and teachers. This holistic approach ensures that:

  • Teachers are not just knowledgeable about technology, but also know how to use it to incorporate teamwork, critical thinking, problem solving and creativity into their lessons.
  • Students use technology in a hands-on environment to demonstrate what they have learned and to find creative solutions to problems.

Check out the TechStart programs. Coming up soon is the Oregon Game Project Challenge on May 4. Over 40 teams will compete at Chemeketa Community College in Salem.
