TechNights (Creative Technology Nights for Girls) is a program focused on exposing middle school girls to creative technologies.  Using computer animation, web design, programming, robotics, and interactive medias, we hope to engage a future generation of women in technology. 

This year TechNights is sponsored by Duolingo!
