GTEC History

GTEC was founded in 2015 by Kalani High School Robotics students Camelia Lai and Sara Nakagaki who realized a shortage of women involved in technological fields. They were awarded by the National Center for Women and Information Technologies (NCWIT) for aspirations in computing. With the NCWIT AspireIT grant and partnership with the University of Hawaii they established GTEC to inspire K - 12 girls in computing and technology.
