The Athena Conference (TAC) is an initiative to introduce high school girls to technology and engineering fields. Inspired by The Artemis Project, a five-week technology program for high school girls, TAC has the goal of informing and encouraging girls to consider a career in these areas. 

TAC aims to increase exposure in fields such as computer science and engineering to the underrepresented female population. By learning new concepts, connecting with peers and college students, and receiving mentoring from industry professionals, the students will be able to build the confidence necessary to be successful in technology-related areas. 

The Athena Conference will run May 10th, 9-4 at UMBC. There will also be a parent session in the morning from 9-12.
