Watch: Girls Garage, where learning to build promotes creativity and grit

At this West Berkeley workshop, young girls and teens learn how to use their imaginations and sophisticated equipment to build anything they can dream of.

Tucked along 10th Street in West Berkeley, you’ll find the Girls Garage — a space for girls aged 9 to 17 to build and design. Each year, 200 girls walk in to learn everything from carpentry and welding to laser etching at the 3,600-square-foot workshop. They walk out with a fearless sense of confidence.
