Educators today agree that the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) disciplines are vital in preparing children for the high-tech careers of tomorrow. To get children interested in STEM, you can’t just talk to them about science and engineering
I remember my sheer excitement when I was invited to one of the first computer classes at my elementary school. I felt as though the world of technology opened up to me, and I think those early days of computing really inspired my future in technology. Since I was afforded that experience as a child, today I am a big supporter of encouraging the next generation of girls into STEM professions.
