About TechDIY Project

How TechDIY project start
As a mother who has a daughter, Ji Sun Lee is interested in how she can share her enjoyment of making interesting technology projects, that she has worked on the graduate program of Interactive Telecommunications Program at New York University, with others. The reason is that she, like many other women, also was not initially interested in learning about electronics. However, She knew the enjoyment of making something by herself and felt joy through these achievements. She was able to create projects that were unique. Using technology for her projects increased confidence in learning. As a result, she has developed the Tech DIY idea as a part of her thesis project to encourage women to learn about technology just as she has been.

The D.I.Y. (Do It Yourself) technologies project for women, Tech DIY, involves a holistic process of mothers and daughters learning electronics together and sharing this with others. With the Tech DIY kit, mothers will have a good time with their children. It will offer alternative views of how mothers and their children relate to technology. Children will see that women can understand and be creative with technology.
