Helping girls achieve their dreams one class at a time.

Summer 2019
Pilot Program

Our inaugural program featured a 7 week course on creativity, cognitive science, and computer science in tandem with activities, workshops, and field trips—offering a space for girls to ideate innovative solutions to real world problems and act on them.

Since then, we have continued to innovate and refine our programs for the next batch of girls.

The c-tech Approach

We have created a method that effectively combines the creativity of design thinking, the scientific reasoning of cognitive science, and the implementation of technology through computer science to solve problems.

Our program makes a difference

The long-term goal is to achieve the possibility of helping girls globally. We are working hard on raising enough funds to digitize our platform so that every girl, regardless of their zipcode, has the opportunity to become a female leader. In the future, we hope to lease our own space in the Bay Area and continue to expand and optimize our program offerings. In the next 5 years, we hope to have created 5,000+ more female leaders.
