1- 'for Lebanese teenage girls who like Technology: 
The TechGirls Program.

The TechGirls program brings teenage girls, 15-17 years old, from countries in the Middle East and North Africa to the United States in June-July 2012 for a three- to five-weeks. The goals of the TechGirls program are to provide a program of academic study of applied technology for girls who already have a demonstrated aptitude and strong interest in technology and to empower girls to pursue higher education and careers in technology. This exchange program focuses on promoting high-level study of technology by engaging girls in hands-on classes, labs, individual or team-based project design and development, mentoring experiences, visits to high tech companies in the United States, and more.

We are looking for energetic applicants who are interested in developing their leadership and technology skills in order to become future leaders and experts in the field of technology.
If interested, please e-mail BeirutPD@state.gov and ask for the application form (Which has to be filled and sent back by latest 4:30 p.m on March 1, 2012.)'
