You’d never think that, tho…given the prevalence of girls’-coding-type classes and programs that are floating around the ‘net. But I do have a daughter who’s been spending an inordinate amount of time this summer playing […]

A while back I wrote about my 12-year-old daughter’s discovery of her love for STEM activities. What began with the exploration of a 3D pen has since moved into more colorful and fun activities, such as learning chemistry through swimming pool care, and a recent Girls Coding Camp I hosted for her AHG friends (more […]
