Talking Tech

January 26, 2017

We've been busy talking to local students about opportunities in the STEAM fields. The Geek Foundation's Co-Founder, Maranda Provance, visited Field Elementary in December of 2016, to participate in a program called Hour of Code. While at Field, she led a coding lesson for students and showed them that coding can be both fun and useful for a future career. 

In January of 2017, Provance also visited with a group of high-achieving ladies at the Bolivar High School. While in Bolivar, she discussed opportunities available to women within the STEAM industry, some of the challenges that exist for women, and how to overcome them.

We at The Geek Foundation believe that these discussions are critical to the expansion of women and minorities in tech fields, and we hope you do too.
