Mission

FEMMES at the University of Chicago seeks to engage middle school girls in hands-on activities in the field of computer science in an effort to close the technology gender gap.

To work towards this mission, we host the Annual UChicago FEMMES Tech Capstone event. In partnership with the Office of Special Programs, we brought 100 middle school girls to campus on Saturday, February 28th, 2015 for a daylong event of computer science workshops. This year's Tech Capstone will take place on April 22nd, 2017.

By giving girls real world technological skills to build upon though our Code Camp, we hope to inspire them to continue their studies in computer science. We also provide opportunities for girls to attend lectures and demonstrations by university professors at our Capstone event.
