Tech Girls Movement
The Tech Girls Movement was founded on International Women’s Day in 2014. They focus on encouraging girls into STEM with books that have real-life female role models, and have given a phenomenal 80,000 free books to schools across Australia. They also run a number of activities and programmes, such as the TechGirls Competition, Robotics Workshops and Academy for Enterprising Girls.
