In April, nonprofit Latinitas hosted its 10th technology conference for girls age 9 to 18, exposing young bilingual and bicultural Latinas and other girls to design thinking and new technologies.
This year’s conference brought professionals in the user experience (UX) design industry and virtual reality production to create their very own website and experience virtual reality. During lunch, girls met with career presenters from tech companies. The conference took place at the Austin Community College Eastview Campus.
Latinitas aims to empower Latina youth using media and technology. For more information, visit laslatinitas.com.
