The untold history of women in science and technology #WomenInSTEM
Whitehouse.gov has an awesome piece on the untold history of women in science and technology. Go here to listen to the stories of some amazing women including Grace Hopper, Rachel Carson, and Ada Lovelace.
They were leaders in building the early foundation of modern programming and unveiled the structure of DNA.
Their work inspired environmental movements and led to the discovery of new genes.
They broke the sound barrier — and gender barriers along the way.
And inspiring more young women to pursue careers in science starts with simply sharing their stories.
Let’s write their stories permanently into history.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
