2021 Techie Workshop: Virtual Registration

TECH CORPS, with generous support from KeyBank, will implement Techie Workshops virtually this summer with girls from Albany and Buffalo, NY as well as Cleveland, OH!

Each workshop will consist of one Instructor and a team of volunteers from KeyBank. There will be a mix of whole-group and small-group interactions throughout the workshop.

In order to successfully participate in a virtual Techie Workshop, students must have the following items during the program time:
