High-Tech High Heels - North Texas

A nonprofit organization

High-Tech High Heels is working to achieve equitable representation for women in the STEM workforce.

We do this by giving grants to nonprofit and school-based programs that are improving Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education and providing engaging and inspiring STEM experiences for K-12 girls and young women.

So far this year, High-Tech High Heels North Texas has granted over $231,000 to various North Texas after school programs, physics camps, STEM workshops and Gender Equity Training for Teachers. Our grants have provided the following since the beginning of High-Tech High Heels in 2001:

- Over 1,000 girls have attended physics camps.
- 800 STEM teachers have attended Gender Equity Training.
- 1,000 counselors have attended workshops on STEM careers.
- 40,000 students are impacted annually from HTHH programs.


Our mission is to invest in the education and development of young women to increase the number who pursue STEM careers.


High-Tech High Heels aggregates and funds diverse, effective programs that encourage and prepare young women in middle school and high school to excel in STEM. We invest in organizations that provide services to level the playing field for female students in STEM, and we connect disparate programs to create an ecosystem of support that addresses equity training, academic preparation and driving interest and awareness in STEM

Our support of gender equity training has resulted in thousands of educators and counselors being trained, impacting more than 40,000 students annually. Girls who attend the AP Physics Camps we support are 2.6x more likely to earn a STEM degree and 5x more likely to earn an engineering degree than non-campers. And, we have incubated new programs in the areas of gender equity training, hands-on physics camps and robotics clubs for high school girls.

High-Tech High Heels is open to all who are interested in preparing and encouraging girls to pursue careers in STEM.

Equity Statement

High-Tech High Heel’s mission is to close the gender gap in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Our goal is for ALL girls to have the opportunity to pursue the STEM career field of their choice, limited only by their talent, effort and aspiration.

Additionally, we are committed to evaluate and treat every donor, grant request and recipient, prospective board member, and prospective volunteer equally in support of all races, genders, and sexual orientations. Our aim is for all members and stakeholders of our organization to be treated with dignity and respect.
