Lil' Wings Technologies

To improve Young Ladies skill & confidence in wireless technologies. Young Ladies between the ages of 11-16 years will learn how to set-up a basic wireless network topology in homes of inner-city families who need support in the initial phase for educational purposes. Young Ladies will learn the basic principles of wireless technologies in a hands-on wireless PC/Laptop Lab environment for 7 weekends. Young Ladies will be recruited from the inner-city with a variety of ethnic & socio-economic background who will gain full benefit of classroom interaction. Young Ladies will meet with other Young Ladies attending technology schools and/or Older Ladies in the profession to encourage them in this career. This pilot project can become a model for other neighboring communities in the urban Boston area.
