This cover speaks volumes! Stem has been the focus for many years BUT not for women of color and not for WOMEN at all for a matter of fact. This is why there is still a lack of women of color in the tech workforce. Many times young ladies don’t see hero’s like the one on the magazine cover. Action figures are nearly obsolete if a women is considered a character. So I charge you! Influencers of the younger generation to use movies like Hidden Figures and Black Panthers as a stepping stone in getting more girls interested in STEM and actually majoring in STEM fields!
wow this is such an inspirational story! Please read it and share it with all of your students (especially our girls)! What an awesome way to be remembered! Laurel you rock!
This is a huge step in helping students learn to code. I think starting in elementary builds the foundation that students need. Click here to learn more about apple partnering with Tynker.

I accidentally came across this awesome website called #wecode. It's about shattering the glass in the technology and giving women a voice in edtech! This is an awesome movement! Wow!
I came across this article and it's a must read! Google is leading the way in trying to promote STEM!
Hidden Figures was one of the best movies that I've ever seen before! Watching this movie made me realize that minorities have made a huge dent in the STEM world but there is so much more work to do. Most of the times women are hidden Figures in the work place and I sometimes wonder why is this? Are women inferior to men? Of course they are not but I think society still has to realize this!! There has been numerous amounts of research that has been done that proves that the male brain and the femal brain operates the same. There is no proven research that states the male brain has "the smart DNA". Which debunks the theory that boys are smarter than girls or vice versa.
After watching this movie twice I have realized that educators should make an effort to crash the digital divide amongst women and men. I think this movie should be shown to every student! It's a must see!
