Grace Hopper Program
Tech Talks

During the project phase each student explores new technologies needed to bring their specifics idea to life. You'll dive into documentation and learn the nitty gritty through hands-on work. That new knowledge presents a teaching opportunity for you and your classmates. Each student gives a Tech Talk presentation to their own cohort, sharing their new expertise. To get a sense for what Tech Talks look like, check out some recent videos below!
