“I really want to increase awareness about tech and show girls it’s not all just coding... There’s art, there’s engineering, there’s building.” // See how AiC Community Member Paige Burns is helping middle school girls explore computing with a grant from AspireIT in this article.
“We want them to think of that space differently, so that not only are they leaders but they’re innovators in that space.” // In this Spectrum News video report, check out the stop-motion animations that participants in the Latinitas coding camp are creating with support from AiC Community Member Sylvia Butanda and AspireIT.
