High school girls (grades 9-12) have the unique opportunity to explore the digital humanities at New-York Historical Society. Participants get behind-the-scenes access to our Center for Women’s History where they will meet with curators, graduate fellows, and influential women in the technology field, and conduct research on the historical figures and events that continue to impact young women today. Participants then share their scholarship through dynamic digital projects from websites to apps and video games.
