Brief History of Girls Technology Day

  Girls Technology Day events are coordinated by the NH Department of Education in partnership with the NH High Tech Council, the Community College System of NH, University of New Hampshire College of Engineering and Physical Science, and many business partners. Since 2012, these events have served to encourage New Hampshire's female students to become invested in technical career fields during the ninth and tenth grades. Student attendance numbers continue to grow on an annual basis. By 2016 there were nearly 600 students registered to attend the events on at New Hampshire Technical Institute in Concord and the University of New Hampshire’s College of Engineering and Physical Science (CEPS) in Durham.  We expect to eclipse 1000 students attending these annual events as more sponsors and locations volunteer to become part of this endeavor.
