Year-Round Workshops for Girls

The Tech Arts for Girls program began more than 20 years ago with the aim of providing young women access to computer arts in an effort to close the gender gap in computer and technology fields. Today we are still carrying on this effort to ensure we at Squeaky Wheel keep fighting the good fight to continue working to close this gap and provide a supportive and creative space for young makers to grow.

Tech Art for Girls (est. 1999) is a community action project that encourages girls from the city of Buffalo and Erie County to receive an affordable hands-on education in computers, technology, and media literacy for young women 10-16. Classes take place on Saturdays from 10 am–1 pm.

Registration must occur at least three days prior to the start date of the workshop. Cancellations must take place one week before to receive a full refund. No walk-ins accepted. Scholarships are available based on need.

For questions or registration please email

Tech Arts for Girls has received generous support from Hodgson Russ LLP, Children’s Foundation of Erie County, Cameron and Jane Baird Foundation, and the Margaret L. Wendt Foundation.
