TechGirlz wants to help teach technology to middle school girls across the country, but first, the nonprofit needs your help with beta testing.

The three-year-old organization led by Chariot Solutions Chief Marketing Officer Tracey Welson-Rossman launched TechShopz Library, through which it will share its hands-on workshops with educators and organizations. Workshops range from video game design to HTML/CSS to creating with programming language Scratch.

Sign up to beta test the workshops here.

TechShopz Library is part of Welson-Rossman’s plan to scale TechGirlz outside of the Philadelphia region.
