We started something special in April 2014.
On the campus of UNC Charlotte, INTech Camp for Girls hosted its first one-day program for middle school girls. After seeing the reactions of everyone who attended, the volunteers, the parents, and the participants themselves, Founder Khalia Braswell recognized the importance of what they had done, and the need to do more.
In partnership with Teach For America South Carolina, INTech followed up their early success with 3 camps in 3 different cities in South Carolina in 1 day. More than 70 Black and Latina girls were able to learn about HTML, CSS and website development from women in tech who looked like them. It was a powerful experience to connect with girls from rural communities who often have less access and exposure to education in computer science and engineering.
