Girls Can, Too! | BCTC

Girls Can, Too!

To make advances in manufacturing, Kentucky needs skilled technical workers. Our faculty at BCTC see that few women graduate in Advanced Manufacturing. The Girls Can Too Project will address this problem!


Girls can, too!

Middle and high school girls, grades 7-12, come join us for career exploration led by women working with, designing, and repairing robots, computers, and manufacturing equipment.


You'll explore careers in electricity, engineering, computer aided design and industrial maintenance. Learn about safety, how to use tools, and career opportunities in these fields. Each of you will be paired with a female mentor to support your career exploration.


Learning experiences with hands-on activities, industry tours and mentors are all part of our free Saturday morning activities held 10:00a.m.-12:00p.m.
