Women are rarely found in the tech and entrepreneurial worlds. (See "It's a Guy Thing," 7/5/13.) This is a problem with a complicated answer. But if you have a daughter between 9 and 13, you can do your part. Sign her up for the "Girls Only SCRATCH Class" at the Madison Children's Museum this fall.
SCRATCH is a programming language for beginners. Why girls only? Because experience shows that computer classes and clubs for K-12 kids are dominated by boys. This nine-week class, led by computer science students from UW-Madison, wants to crack the door open for girls. Call Amanda Thomas for information at 608-256-6445, ext. 156.
