Luz Rivas is Founder and Executive Director of DIY Girls.
Founded in 2011, DIY Girls is a project of Social and Environmental Entrepreneurs, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization.
DIY (“Do-It-Yourself”) Girls’ mission is to increase women and girls’ interest in technology, engineering and making by providing hands-on educational experiences. DIY Girls develops and implements educational programs and events designed to encourage exploration with technology, promote self-confidence and support aspiration to technical careers.
With the rise of the DIY maker movement and the recent accessibility of tools (3D printers, open source hardware, etc.) formerly only available in engineering labs, the future of technology product development will be determined by people who will design and build their own products. We envision a future where women and girls fully participate and are well-represented in this new economy.
