A week ago I reminisced about my early interest in science as I told you about jobs with the Museum of Science, Boston. As a young kid, I always felt secure in loving science and never worried too much about what other kids thought. Maybe it was because it was ok for boys to like science? Or because the exposure to science that I had was designed for boys? I don’t know. What I do know is that females are largely underrepresented in careers in science, engineering, and technology. Techbridge is an Oakland, CA based non-profit that is “encouraging girls in science, technology, and engineering careers” by developing and implementing a science education program just for girls. The program has been around for 9 years, and it seems to be working well.

Techbridging the Gap

As a guy, it’s not all that easy to write about organizations that are focused on addressing women’s issues, but it’s hard not to like an organization that “has served over 2,500 girls in grades 5-12.” Techbridge was launched by the Chabot Space & Science Center in Oakland, CA, and now works in 17 local school districts. The next step for the organization is to “launch Techbridge programs-in-a-box to inspire thousands more girls in technology and engineering.” Now that they know what works, they want to expand it across the country. They’ve already teamed up with some Girl Scout Troops to test the “programs-in-a-box,” and hopefully they’ll see a lot of success. If you’d like to be a part of that success, then you should consider a job with Techbridge. They list their opportunities on Idealist, and right now there’s only one job available, but it looks well suited to new grads. It’s as a Program Coordinator/Instructor, and it appears to be an awesome job with lots of hands on work. If you’re interested in applying, send a cover letter and resume to techbridgegirls@gmail.com. with “Program Coordinator” in the subject line.
