This is awesome and I have total respect for what you're doing with this program. However, I feel that you are missing out on a huge opportunity by creating a boys only (and a separate girls only, as you mention here in comments) program. In addition to teaching these kids technical skills and developing their self esteem, you have a great opportunity to also instill respect for women (and men) by leveling the gender gap that is still very real in technology. Please consider a mixed program that also teaches kids of both genders to learn to work together and respect one another.
