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.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
