What would you like the next generation of girls to know?
I want them to not concern themselves with what others or society tells them they should be or be interested in. Feed your curiosity, find what makes you excited, get exposed to STEM/STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Art and Math) as early as you can. STEAM doesn't have to be this profession that you do, it can exist in any profession or hobby or activity you like, whether robotics or arts and crafts or fashion or social activities.
How has your company, littleBits, made an impact?
littleBits is a gender-neutral platform that is designed to unleash creativity and instill a love of STEAM through the cycle of inventing. We get girls to fall in love with STEM by showing them how it fits in with hobbies they are already interested in. And we introduce new concepts via hands-on, project-based challenges. As a result, we see girls learning to code by inventing adaptive keyboards, or designing interactive games - thinking about the applications of STEM by solving real world problems with littleBits.
