OREM, Utah -- Picture a convention of 1,200 high school students who want to go into a technology field.
How much do you have to change your picture when you learn they are all girls?
The She-Tech conference at Utah Valley University exists to shatter male-centered tech stereotypes.
Technology industries are dominated by men, with women representing about 20 percent of the workforce. That's according to Cydni Tetro, the co-Founder and President of the Women Tech Council, which sponsors She-Tech.
"It is vital that we get and inspire young women into STEM because they are such a critical part of the future generation that will be part of our core workforce," Tetro said.
The She-Tech conference gathers girls from Utah high schools in a forum where they can try hands-on experiments in fields from computer coding, to physics, to microbiology.
