EE Times will shine a spotlight on “women in tech” in our special edition, illustrating the technical achievements, leadership and integrity demonstrated by female engineers and scientists.
Invisible women in tech
Our goal with this special edition is making visible the invisible women in technology.
We are currently soliciting names, and recommendations from you, the tech industry at large, and our own global editorial board. We hope to cover a broader beachfront for “women in tech” using these criteria. We’re looking for women who:
-Have tangible tech/engineering achievements
-Have shown leadership in the industry (beyond the company or companies they’ve worked for)
-Have played a key role in mentoring and advancing young engineers
We’re also seeking “Non-engineering” women who have made stellar contributions to engineering projects, women investors, and rising stars.
We look forward to hearing from you. Please click here, take our survey and send in your recommendations. The deadline for submission of names is set at Sept. 30th.
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.
