Project Description

Gear Girls

Gear Girls was an intensive six-week workshop that exposed young women to the excitement and opportunities of the industrial arts and supported personal growth through working with creative teams and principles.

By studying industrial arts in a safe and supportive environment, girls access creativity, reinforce scientific understanding, and learn about exciting career opportunities that might otherwise seem intimidating or closed to women.

During this program, young women learned welding basics at The Crucible in West Oakland.
