8 inspiring girls making an impact on STEM and education
What better day than 11 October, the UN’s International Day of the Girl Child, to celebrate eight remarkable young women and girls who have only just begun to make their mark. There are three Coderdojo ninjas included in the article! Well done:
Dubliner Lauren is an advocate for girls in STEM, founder of Cool Kids Studio and the developer of this initiative’s three websites. She’s also just nine years old.
At just 11 years old, Tyriah became the youngest-ever founder of a CoderDojo, a volunteer-led initiative to teach kids how to code. Inspired by this movement, Allison – a self-taught and experienced Python coder – emailed Torsten Reil, CEO of NaturalMotion, a tech and games company with its headquarters in Oxford, England.
Another of Silicon Republic’s Rising Star award winners, teenager Catrina learned to code through CoderDojo and has now become a mentor for CoderDojo Girls, passing on her knowledge to more young girls.
