TECH-Nique’s focus seems to be on African-American young women. Will you only be accepting that demographic?

TECH-Nique’s programming is based in research around what motivates young African American women to consider a career in computer science. Our programs do involve an oversampling of African-American young women, but the program is open to all demographics.
