GirlTech Empowers Girls at Fox Valley Tech

GirlTech Empowers Girls at Fox Valley Tech

By Katie Kozak. CREATED Jul 17, 2013

 GRAND CHUTE -- Middle school girls from around Northeast Wisconsin are stepping out of the "norm" this week.

It's all part of GirlTech camp at Fox Valley Technical College. They spent today learning important workplace skills like welding, electronics, robotics, and chemistry... fields that were once considered for men only.

"A lot of times when science camps are offered in the area, we see typically a large number of boys going into those types of camps and very few girls. So what' really unique about this camp is that it's open to all girls," says Data Analyst Laura Waurio with FVTC.

The camp runs through the end of the week.
