I’m now in a small break-out discussion regarding the lack of female students’ interest in technology / computer science careers (and also science, math, etc.)!
Thanks for the “run-down” of what was covered at the Smackdown!
Thanks for re-posting this list in shortened form and with links to those who shared… I was so busy trying to stream and coveritlive I didn’t get to save any to my diigo bookmarks!
I am really enjoying your “coverage” of NECC! Was good to connect with you again this year
