Organizers Kristie Callander and Michelle Hafer said the event is seeking to explore all types of skillsets and jobs that are utilized to create tech tools and is also designed with programming for newcomers to the tech community. They are also planning a showcase of STEM to STEAM featuring Baltimore creators using tech to make art, games and more.

Callander said the organizers encourage all comers to attend, regardless of gender.


Since launching last summer, the Goggle Women Techmakers chapter has been holding events about every 6-8 weeks, and has seen attendance increasing. To organize this event, Callander said she and Hafer worked with Baltimore tech community members including Shervonne Cherry, Jessica Watson, Chelsea Keene and Angelique Weger.
