The IGNITE Mission
IGNITE’s mission is to create opportunities to spark girls’ excitement about technology careers and inspire them to new possibilities. IGNITE lights them up. Girls in grades 6-12 from all backgrounds interact with professional women in technology careers during the school day.

Working with teachers, IGNITE increases girls’ interest and participation in computer science and engineering classes.
