Youth In Action: Digital Futures for Women #WHM23 #WomensHistoryMonth #WomenInSTEM
Available until Friday, March 31, 2023, Smithsonian hosted a lecture and discussion on the current state and future of Indigenous women in STEM.
In an industry that is often dominated by men, how are Native women making space for themselves and others? April Armijo (Navajo/Pueblo of Acoma) and panelists Natalie Contreras (Tepehuán/Coca/P’urépecha) and Danielle Boyer (Ojibwe) discuss how young Indigenous women are forging their own paths in the tech world and creating a more inclusive environment.
In English with English and Spanish captions.
This program is part of the Youth in Action: Conversations about Our Future series, which features young Indigenous activists and changemakers from across the Western Hemisphere who are working towards equity and social justice for Indigenous peoples.

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.
