…we asked respondents if they were able to name a famous male and female leader in technology. In stark contrast, 49% of consumers saidthey were able to name a famous male tech leader, with the top choices being (1) Bill Gates, (2) Steve Jobs, (3) Elon Musk, and (4) Mark Zuckerberg.
When it came to female leaders in tech, however, consumers were less confident, as only 8.3% claimed they could name a female tech leader. When tested, a mere 4% could actually give a name — and a quarter of them listed “Siri” and “Alexa” as female technology leaders.
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
