TechNights

https://www.cmu.edu/scs/technights/index.html

TechNights provides hands-on technology skills and practice for middle school girls through a series of weekly workshops. The on-campus workshops cover such topics as robotics, algorithms, programming, game design, machine learning and more. A graduate leader oversees the workshops and assists other CMU students, who develop individual sessions. Student volunteers help, which allows for one-on-one guidance. Since the advent of COVID-19, program leaders and volunteers have begun developing videos that participants can watch remotely.
