We are pleased to support the Tech Museum of Innovation and their Girls in Tech program. Based in San Jose, CA, the Tech offers exhibits and activities which showcase the technological drive for which Silicon Valley is famous.

As part of a broader initiative to make access to technical education accessible to a more diverse segment of the population, the Tech is organizing a series of events designed to bring learning opportunities to girls and young women. These Girls in Tech events will introduce girls to positive role models working in STEM fields, and will offer them a chance at hands-on learning in a given STEM field. Participants in various events will prototype smartphone applications, learn to solder, try programming and game design, and more.

The Tech Museum is making great strides in broadening the appeal of technological topics, and Abe Farag Family Foundation is very proud to take part in supporting their efforts.
