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 K-12, and college from all backgrounds interact with professional women in technology careers during the school day. Girls and young women glimpse themselves as innovators and entrepreneurs through stories of successful women who work and live in their communities. Working with teachers, IGNITE increases girls’ interest and participation in computer science and engineering classes.
With the growth and positive outcomes IGNITE has created, a demand for the program in elementary schools and colleges has arisen. IGNITE’s mission now encompasses girls and young women at every level of their education.
