Girlhood Remixed Technology Camp (GRTC) empowers girls to experiment with digital design and digital equipment in a safe, supportive space. Through NMSU faculty and graduate student as well as local K-12 teacher mentorship, the girls will use a mixture of high-skill and low-skill technologies to create several projects, and they will blog about and discuss how technology has shaped their girlhood identities and what they can do to challenge any negative stereotypes they perceive.
The theme for GRTC 2016 is "What does it mean to be a girl in the digital age?" All discussions and activities will engage the girls with questions about technology and identity. This year, the campers will participate in workshops that will help them create:
web-based digital games
