Bio

Sadhana is a junior at Poolesville HS interested in computer science, cyber security, and engineering. To date, her greatest technical accomplishment has been developing a home security system that relies of WiFi waves to detect motion using Python. Her goal is to use technology and social outreach to spark STEM interest in other girls and in disadvantaged students to increase the spectrum of diversity in STEM fields. Currently, she is working towards this goal as the co-founder and president of Volunteers In Science and Technology, a mentoring program that allows high school students from diverse backgrounds to mentor middle school students and increase STEM interest through encouraging them to compete in local science competitions. She is planning to attend college and major in computer science and business.
