Dare To Create
Learn how to make wearable tech
Ages 10-99 (sewing involved)
We'll send you a box with a new wearable tech project every month.Each project will be a step in our progressive curriculum for wearable technology.
You'll learn all about circuits, programming, and electronics.
You don't need to know anything to get started. We'll show you how to create your own wearable tech from a complete beginner level!
A different wearable each month.
ie. Bracelets, hats, bags, and more!
Each box will contain different parts depending on the project for that month.
Every project comes with an instruction booklet.
To close the gender gap in technology.
Women in tech - there aren't many.
Whether it's startups, investors, programming, or IT, roles like these are traditionally boy's clubs.
Women in tech face sexism and harassment on nearly a daily basis. It's no wonder the quit rate for women is more than twice as high than men in tech (41% vs 17%).
There's a clear gender divide in the tech industry, and it's only getting worse.
In 1991, women had 36% of computing roles. In 2017, it's down to 25%.
With odds stacked against women like this, it's easy to be deterred from the tech industry.
But it's not for a lack of capability
Women-led companies perform 3 times better than companies with male CEOs.
It's not for a lack of interest either
About 74% of young girls express interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) fields and computer science.
They're just not being shown the right role models.
They aren't being given enough guidance in these areas.
IT'S UP TO US
To show women of all ages that they can be successful in technology and that they don't need to feel intimidated by STEM.
Join us in the movement to empower women in technology.
