  1. I love seeing women in STEM. This is an interesting read:

    Ultimately it starts with Legos and doing STEM on your own when no one is looking.
    I’ve hired STEM people (programmers/engineers) and my favorite question to ask is “What projects are you working on in your spare time?” Saying this anecdotally, oft times the female job applicants don’t tinker with STEM in their spare time whereas the males usually do. I do not know why I’ve seen that pattern or what it’s implicatiin are, so this really is a question.

    I’d like to see more men teachers, more men in Healthcare.

  2. If you would like to do a raffle among your virtual attendees, I would like to donate a Circuit Playground Express for a prize. The donation is used, but not damaged. To date, it has been used as a “sorting hat” (Harry Potter series), and as a sound alarm. It has a number of cool sensors, and programming can be from “drag and drop” to C.
