#GirlsTech STEM Training Program Arrives in Barcelona and Girona

The U.S. consulate general in Barcelona will offer 40 scholarships to girls between 9 and 12 years old to participate in two summer camps devoted to digital fabrication and augmented reality.

#GirlsTech arrives in Barcelona and Girona this summer after a great success in Madrid, Valencia and Santander. This is the U.S. Mission in Spain’s STEM training program addressed to girls between 9 and 12 years old, with the overall goal of promoting scientific vocations among them.

The consulate general will offer a total of 40 #GirlsTech scholarships to participate in two summer camps coordinated by Pompeu Fabra University’s Department of Information and Communication Technologies Engineering (ETIC), which will take place at the American Space Barcelona and the Carles Rahola Library in Girona. Each grant includes the participation in a daily training (2.5 hours) during two weeks, in addition to all the necessary materials. In Barcelona (from July 3 to July 13), the training will focus on digital fabrication. In Girona (July 17 to July 27), the focus will be augmented reality.

#GirlsTech was initially launched by the U.S. Embassy in Madrid and so far almost 300 girls have participated in it.
