“Earlier this year, I launched a Girls Who Code club at a charter school in Washington, D.C. As the facilitator, I worked with third and fourth graders as they were introduced to foundational coding concepts. Additionally, each club meeting included a focus on a relevant female STEM figure. It was so empowering to learn about these women and introduce their significant contributions to my students, so they could be equally inspired to contribute to the STEM field!”
