The goal of Techsploration is to increase the number of women working in science, trades and technology occupations by assisting young women from diverse backgrounds to explore a wide range of career options.
Techsploration, a not-for-profit organization, was established in 1998 because we believed if you want to make a change in the number of women working in these fields, you have to reach the young women. Techsploration directly addresses this.
Techsploration provides young women from grades nine through twelve with opportunities to explore science, trades and technology occupations, while creating awareness about the critical role of work in their lives. It also helps them understand the significance of high school math and science for their future careers.
