I am excited about developing programs to help girls and minorities learn about Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics using Art(STEAM).
In particular I am excited about helping them to learn computing skills: web development, computer programming.
- I am excited about this because we need more people working in this field - especially women and minorities.
Through the programs students will skills that allow them to pursue STEM opportunities -depending on the skills the acquire they can work for a company or independently for themselves. Everybody benefits the learners, the country and corporate America .
I became interested in this topic after completing degrees in engineering and teaching engineering.
The world should care because there is a great demand for people with technical skills - here in America we have a shortage of people we need more people in the field.
